Putting down Esrog between sets of shakes in Ana
Question: [Sunday 20th Tishrei 5781]
I see certain people putting down the Esrog between the two shakes of Ana Hashem Hoshia Nah in Hallel. Is there a reason behind this custom?
I am not aware of any source behind this custom, although it was witnessed by the Rebbe that he would follow this custom of putting it down between the two set of shakes by Ana Hashem. However, as far as I know, the Rebbe only did so by Hallel of Yom Tov, and not by Chol Hamed.
