How big is your sukkah, and how many people do you sit in it?
I have a 16′ x 18′ sukkah and I sit anywhere from 10 to 15 people in it over yom tov.
5.70 x 2.8 meters. Sleeps 7 comfortably, and 3 meters floor to schach so it looks expansive.
We need to fit 11 children and ~ 55 grandchildren k’h.
My sukah is thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis big.
(sleeps about one man and one or two small children)
Mine is like the courtyard of the Beis HaMikdash on Yom Kippur…
It’s big, but not soooo big, yet seems miraculously to expand to always be able to accommodate my B”H, bli ayin ha’ra, always expanding family (ken yirbu).
Ours is located in our Garden in Jerusalem, its about 3 meters by 4.5 long, and its big enough for my mother inlaws birthday party that falls every year on chol hamoed
mine is big but dont know measurements….lol
it fits me so it must be big no?
mine is huge. Quite plush, but not overly ostentatious. I can invite the whole neighborhood over. I want them to be envious.
D/T the fact that I live in a condo with a teeny balcony that has a complete roof (and a cruel condo board) I, alas, cannot have a sukkah. I make good use of the one at my shul, which is enormous.
10 x 12 and only i use it. it does feel a bit empty sometimes…but its really nicely decorated and i spend the entire day in my sukkah although i sleep indoors.
Our Sukkah is BIG!! It cud fit like 12-15 ppl in it! its really good!!
