Using someone else's lulav


[This is too late for this Succos, but it still teaches an important lesson.]

A man may use someone else's lulav without asking, albeit only gently, since we believe that people are happy to have others use their property for a mitzvah.

A woman may similarly use someone else's lulav without asking. Even though she is not obligated in the mitzvah, it is still meritorious for her to fulfill the mitzvah.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 2:106)

Have a great day,
