Hoshana Rabbah is one of the few holidays on the Jewish calendar that one can photograph in an orthodox synagogue.  So I got myself up early to be ready for the procession winding around the shul.  Waving palm branches, etrogs in special boxes, adults and children beating willow branches on the ground--it's an energetic and unforgettable spectacle.  As a Seattle event photographer, I shoot many religious and cultural gatherings and this holiday is one of my favorites.
