That is one brilliant Sukkah. Love the big Muqata placard in the first photo!Rachel
Interesting. All the Israeli sukkot I've seen have wooden (usu. plywood) walls. Here in America (at least in the northwest), we seem to go for fabric or lattice walls, despite the colder/rainier weather. I'm sure there's some psychological point to be made there... but darned if I know what it is. :)
Tzipporah: Actually - most of the sukkot in Israel are fabric walls.Ours used to be fabric, but I got sick of them flapping in the wind, and trying to figure out ways to keep the walls "kosher" (in that they wouldnt flap).Plus - the wooden walls made the sukka cooler in the hot sun instead of the fabric walls.Rachel: Yes, the muqata banner is cool :)
I would've totally put this post (and the next one) in the Sukkot edition of Haveil Havalim--if you had posted before Sukkot was over!
Jameel: staple gun. Of course now I've been looking all over the place for my staple remover so I can take the darn thing down...Next year I may get fancy and attach velcro to the fabric and the beams. or not.
nice sukkah! great banner :)(and the all important glenfiddich...)
