    There is absolutely no point in a tall lulav

    Nice!!
    Guest
    Nice!!

    This is really cool!

    This might not be any Hidur, but it is definitely really cool!

    There’s books and museums on the biggest / smallest / fastest etc. things in the world, there’s no real point except that lots of people are interested in these types of things.

    One thing is for sure, there is a point, and a BIG point in not being negative for no reason!!!

    If most of lulov is in sukah it is considered as if you bentched lulov in the sukah (just as if most of person’s body is in sukah it is considered that he is in sukah). So if the top 49% sticks out through the schach it is ok to bentch on it in the sukah.

    You need head in sukah!

    If most of person INCLUDING his HEAD is inside sukah – THEN it is considered as if he is in the sukah, but NOT if head is outside of sukah! If head of lulov is outside, you aren’t bentching lulov in the sukah!!!
