This is a mitzvah that is unique to Sukkot is the taking of the Four Species: an etrog(citron), a lulav (palm frond), at least three hadassim (myrtle branches) and two aravot (willow branches). The Midrash tells us that the Four Species represent the various types and personalities that comprise the people and nation of Israel, whose intrinsic unity we emphasize on Sukkot.
