What are Hadasim?

  1. In reference to the triple-leaved hadas the Torah states "a thickly-leaved branch." Its leaves hide its stem, and the leaves grow in a formation along the stem, with clusters of three parallel leaves growing, each from its own petiole, around the stem at short intervals. The feature of each cluster of leaves growing from one level along the branch's stem, is imperative for the mitzvah because the branch is invalid without it. according to the Talmud, the hadas must be meshulash. However, it is not necessary that each of the three petioles grows at exactly the same level. It is sufficient if at least art of each of the three petioles meets the stem at the same level. For example, if each petiole is 2 millimeters in diameter, and one petiole is 1 millimeter higher than the second one and almost 2 millimeters higher than the third, the three leaves are considered to be growing at the same level.
