Regarding the question about the Sadducees. During the Second Temple era, there were times when the Sadducees amassed political power, and even gained the high priesthood the highest spiritual office in Israel. Thus, it came to pass that one Sukkot, the honor of pouring the water on the altar was given to a Sadducee priest; but instead of pouring the water into its prescribed bowl on the southwest corner of the altar, this priest spilled it on his feet to demonstrate his opposition to the practice. The assembled crowd expressed its outrage by pelting him with the etrogim which, this being Sukkot, they held in their hands.
