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.
There has to be a better explanation than that.

Any more sukkah pictures

I have to figure out next year a good idea for a awning on top

Problem is my house is 20 and the awning would have to extend 8 more feet off my house to 28

I guess that's why YOU need decorations. The real thing is never good enough, always need something "better".  ;D

In Lubavitch we have the quote of the Alter Rebbe "...איך וויל מער ניט אז דיך אליין".  (See http://m.he.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/528940/jewish/-.htm)

P.S. Is this thread doomed like the one I started with Sukkah pictures to be merged into the Pros and cons of minhagei Chabad (which wasn't even started to discuss actual minhagim but as a good humorous thread)?

Nope. I also didn't put decorations.

I forgot to mention, was due to laziness and putting the sukka up the last minute.
Does that count?

I thought atarah was to do with wearing tzitis either way...

My sukkah is a 16x16 fiberglass sukkah, with 4 17' beams holding up two rows of 8' schach. A classic. Nothing to write home about

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Eh, no atara is like the same reason as no streimel.

Once we're on the topic of Chabad headgear, can someone explain the triangle top of the crown, as opposed to the more conventional version? Is there a real reason, or is it just something that evolved?
