Sukkes (sukkoth)

The sukke (sukkeh, succah)

The walls can be made of any material, as long as they are secure and don’t flap about in the wind. The roof, however, (we call it s’chach), must be of unprocessed materials which have grown from the ground. Bamboo poles, thin wooden slats, and evergreen branches are popular choices. Just make sure to use enough s’chach so that the inside of your sukke will have more shade than sunlight.

Make the sukke your temporary home. Eat your meals there. The obligation to eat in the sukkah applies to men over the age of 13. But it is a custom to eat there for the whole family during the period from sundown on the 14th of Tishri through nightfall of the 22nd of Tishri. Try to use it the way you would use your flat or house. But if it is raining, there is no duty to eat there. Get back when the weather improves.

Eating in the sukkeh

Kreplach are small squares of rolled pasta dough filled with ground beef or chicken and folded into triangles. They can be boiled and served in soup or fried and served as a side dish. They are traditionally served on the seventh day of Sukkot (Hoshanah Rabbah).
