Question
Shalom aleichem Rabbi Lauffer. Thank you for answering my last question. The word "hoshana" is said before and after every verse in the weekday hoshanas. Is this also the case in the "Nation Protected" hoshana that is said on Shabbos, found on page 736 in the Artscroll Siddur? Thanks a lot.

Question
Dear Rabbi, when Succot is over what does one do with the etrog and luvav? I noticed in my shul that the lulav is placed on top of the Aron Kodesh (the Holy Ark)? There's also one member of our congregation who collects them to make some sort of pie, I think. Could you kindly reply with an explanation? Thank you.

Question
Shalom aleichem Rabbi Lauffer. Thank you for answering my last question. If someone has a web of connected Xmas lights hanging from the schach that are strung across the entire width and breadth of his sukkah, would these lights be considered more than 4 tefachim wide, so that one would not be permitted to sit under them if they are 4 tefachim lower than the schach, or would they not be considered to be more than 4 tefachim wide. Thank you.
