DDF Members Sukkah Pictures
« on: October 16, 2016, 03:13:43 AM »
Being 3am and I'm not even close to finished I figured might be nice to see what everyone else came up with...

Please post your sukkah pictures

A few photos of my sukkah
I built it on a 10 foot high frame
I custom made and keep up all year round
Its made of pvc plastic with aluminum beams
Its 14x28'
Really its two 14' squares

First year I built it
Learnt a lot
Mostly what not to do....
And a lot of help from Hashem

My 3 walls are my house and two fences

The panels are just for weather
Next year I have an idea on how to make them tighter with cable ties and tension straps
They are made out of heavy weatherproof tent material

Do you have lots of guests or host anything ? 28' sounds very roomy

Had 35 people last night
And set up a double wide table for the adults

For the kids single 6' tables

And we still fit a 14' couch across the wall

Looks impressive

Looks slightly bigger than my 2x2 staircase sukkah
Live forever or die trying.

I just notice my night pics are with fluorescents off
I used led 4' shop lights from amazon when they went on sale for $38

And surprisingly 2 lit everything up beautifully!!

But so sad no decorations up....
So many people decorate their sukkah so nice

I didn't have a minute between Ddf and scach 😉

Or if ur lebavitch no need for decorations!
(still not so clear why they don't put any). 
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

There might be a spiritual reason as well but one of the reasons are that if it's significant to you then it may not be בטול to the סכך.

Because that's their minhag. Do you ask why about everything you do in yidishkeit?

The deal with chabad and sukkah  decorations: there are many reasons given for it here is one:
'שיחות קודש' תש"ל ח"א עמ' 129-133. וראה 'אוצר מנהגי חב"ד', תשרי, עמ' רסז.

I'm on ddf on my ladder
The last person that did that got hurt

PS. If you're on a ladder & somebody needs help finding something, GET OFF THE LADDER FIRST. I found out the hard way :(

IINM same reason they don't wear an atara on the talis. Something to do with the mitzvah itself is beautiful and doesn't need external adornment.
If you don't care why would you comment?
