(JTA) — As Hurricane Joaquin gains steam off the southeastern coast of the United States, the question has begun to circulate online: Are Jews allowed to take down their sukkahs in the case of a storm?
If you’re a car-owning Jew on the Upper West Side, beware!
Ah, Sukkot — the time of year you hope it’s still warm enough to be able to eat outside, lest you freeze mid-Challah bite. And what better way to reflect on the holiday then by ranking our favorite Sukkahs? We’ve got our top 5 ranked.
Both #5 and #4 come from the Sukkah City contest in Union Square in 2010. Artists submitted their most inventive sukkahs for consideration, and the results were stunning.
At Sukkot, as we build or assemble and decorate our temporary shelters in the backyard, we might complain about the chilly weather or having hammered our thumbs or the rising cost of etrogim. One Toronto organization is using the opportunity to draw community attention to a much more serious problem: homelessness. Kehilla, a community organization devoted to serving Jewish household experiencing a gap between their housing costs and what their families can afford, presented the 4th annual Sukkahville art show and competition this year to raise money (and awareness) around homelessness.
