Ep. 333: Celebrating Sukkot with a deep dive into the global history of the etrog, a visit to an etrog farm, and a look at Jewish co-housing

October 6, 2022

This week on Unorthodox, we’re shaking the lulav and the etrog and celebrating Sukkot.

First, we’re learning all about the global history of the etrog thanks to Be Fruitful: The Etrog in Jewish Art, Culture, and History. We talk to Warren Klein, one of the collection’s editors, and Jenna Weissman Joselit, a favorite Unorthodox guest and contributor to the collection.


Next, we talk with Roger Studley, the founder of Urban Moshav, a nonprofit dedicated to creating Jewish co-housing communities, about Berkeley Moshav and the role that co-housing plays in building community.

Finally, we’re resharing the 2018 trip our former editor Sophia Steinert-Evoy took to the only commercial etrog farm in the U.S., in Exeter, California, to meet the non-Jews running it.
