General Information (adapted from wikipedia)

Biblical background

A sukkah or succah (Hebrew: סוכה‎; plural, סוכות sukkot  or sukkos or sukkoth or souccot) is a temporary hut constructed for use during the week-long Jewish festival of Sukkot. It is topped with bamboo mats or branches and is often well decorated. The Book of Vayikra describes it as a symbolic wilderness shelter, commemorating the time Hashem provided for the Israelites in the wilderness they inhabited after they were freed from slavery in Egypt. It is common for Jews to eat, sleep and otherwise spend time in the sukkah. Sukkot is considered a joyous occasion and is referred to in Hebrew as Yom Simchateinu (the day of our rejoicing) or Z'man Simchateinu (the time of our rejoicing).

Jewish law and customs

According to halakha, a sukkah must have a minimum of three walls. It should be at least three feet tall, and be positioned so that all or part of its roof is open to the sky. (Only the part which is under the sky is kosher.) A sukkah can be built on the ground or on an open porch or balcony. Indeed, many observant Jews who design their home's porch or deck will do so in a fashion that aligns with their sukkah-building needs.

The roof covering, known as schach in Hebrew, must consist of something that grew from the earth but is currently disconnected from it. Palm leaves, bamboo sticks, pine branches, wood and the like can all be used for schach, unless they were processed previously for a different use. There must be enough schach that inside the sukkah there should be more shade than sun. However, there must be sufficient gaps between the pieces of schach so that one can see the sun or stars.

Many people hang decorations such as streamers, shiny ornaments, and pictures from the interior walls and ceiling beams of a sukkah. Fresh, dried or plastic fruit—including etrogs and the seven species for which Israel is praised (wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates)—are popular decorations.
