What Is a Sukkah Slideshow
1. Sukkah of Stacked Wooden Boards
Hundreds of thin wooden boards stacked in two directions to create the communal space.
2. Tree Trunk-Topped Sukkah
An impossible-looking structure where walls of glass maintain the weight of a massive tree trunk.
3. Split Sukkah
A sand-filled, open-air dome made from plywood, twine, and marsh grass that reaches out in all directions.
4. Cardboard Box Sukkah
Using cardboard messages from those in need of a home as the walls of the shelter, the creeds of Sukkot couldn't be more profoundly expressed.
5. Curvaceous Sukkah
Winding and turning, this thick wicker Sukkah gives a curvy shape to an often sharply edged structure.
6. Framed Sukkah
On a raised platform, this structure appears to float in the air. Its wiry canopy allows fresh air and light to stream in from all angles.
7. Continuous Loop Sukkah
Looping continuous wires around a bamboo scaffold creates a grandiose archway strewn with feathers and mounted over boardwalk planks.
8. Palm-Topped Sukkah
With sides made of plywood, this sukkah has a bed of palm fronds for a roof.
9. Sukkah with Arched Door
Most sukkahs are decorated with harvest-themed items like pumpkins and grasses. Here, palm fronds create a decorative, arched doorway for the outdoor dining room.
