Putting the Lulav Into Water on Yom Tov

Putting the Lulav Into Water on Yom Tov
Day: Sunday
Date: September 27, 2015
Parshat: Vezot Habiracha
Yalkut Yosef: O"H 638

In memory of Adam Eliyahu ben Reina.

A person who keeps his lulav in a vase with water may put the lulav back in the water on Yom Tov. If necessary it is even permissible to add water to the vase. However, the water may not be changed on Yom Tov. On Hol Hamoed though, it is a mitzvah to change the water so that the lulav will stay fresh and nice. Even though women are not required to shake the lulav, it is still not considered to be muktzeh since the men do have a mitzvah to shake it.
