Esrogim Impounded at Ben-Gurion Airport

Last Sunday, agriculture inspectors at Ben-Gurion International Airport confiscated a suitcase containing 70 Italian esrogim being brought into the country by a private individual, not a licensed importer. According to officials, the person who was bringing in the esrogim illegally can expect a fine in the area of NIS 5,000. Agriculture inspectors will be increasingly vigilant this year due to shmitah, realizing more individuals will attempt to bring esrogim from abroad to eliminate shmitah concerns.
