For a nice normal yellow esrog; that is already expensive for my budget.

You tell me?

We pray everyday in Shmonei esreh
and are told to have in mind
A esrog, wine for kiddush and wheat for matzah when praying for sustenance

365×3 prayers a day

How much should it be worth?

$150

So. I haven’t told many this. Absolutely honest n true.
As I get paid Friday every week. I would put away 5$ each week.
In an envelope, with Esrog on it. At the end of the year I would have aprox 250$ which I use for my set without feeling the financial burden.

This is a very special Mitzvah. Different then most others
ולקחת לכם – פרי עץ הדר
Doesn’t say that in any other Mitzvah. So I do this special savings to buy above and beyond that I normally would be expected to. Gut YomTov

How much did you pay for your new dress
September 19, 2021 9:45 pm

Or new hat etc.
a new hat can go up to $300 and a dress …. Or that meat for Yom Tov?
How much did you pay the lady to clean your house?
I have noticed very very rich people (the guys that has more than one house) that won’t spend more than a few dollars on a esrog.
It’s Really the “yetzer harah “

Good

Is good to keep a barometer on rich and not so rich!
NOT

Average?

$250

Thanks for Tzvious HaShem sets -we will use that
September 20, 2021 12:44 am

Thank you Tzvious HaShem for supplying sets for $10 including esrog for boys – me & my family will use this only one.
Thank you CSSY – we will have YT food

Why we need to spend big money on Tishrej that we don’t have? If I had I would donate and support someone’s education that is much important to raise more stable next generation.

Buy for yourself an Esrog that YOU like and that is according to your means- don’t buy to impress someone else or to show off… buy to be please only yourself and HaShem!

Spent little less this year than usual
September 20, 2021 9:39 am

Usually I spend around $200, this year I got a nice one in Crown Heights for 160

The vaccinated will notice that the lulov bends towards the vaccine location.

Good question

It is a very good question, and I’m sure it’s on many a mind. To what degree is one supposed to extend himself on fulfillment of this Mitzva. My suggestion is, to feature an article on the subject from a person knowledge in Halacha on the subject.
A gut Yom tov to everyone.
