No. They feel the mitzvah of the sukkah is beautiful in and of itself. However, I have occaionally seen a sukkah with a picture of the rebbe.October 1, 2009 3:17 pm at 3:17 pm #661213

My succah is decked out in yellow and black. It’s quite easy for me to do this. I put up small jars of honey all over the succah, and the bees put themselves on the walls with no effort on my part.October 1, 2009 8:14 pm at 8:14 pm #661220
does anyone have any original sukkah decorations ideas?October 1, 2009 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #661221RochelimeinuMember
By us the men do the building, and the girls have fun putting up the decorations.
Most of it is the kids’ Sukkos projects from school.October 1, 2009 9:08 pm at 9:08 pm #661222JaxMember
Who Cares?: well a free decoration idea is the OOrah posters!October 1, 2009 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #661223mepalMember
Remember to laminate everything.October 1, 2009 9:29 pm at 9:29 pm #661224

Who Cares: you can take a white carton box cut out windows & a door put in a light source(like those mini magnet blinking led lites)tape some pine branches,&
presto! a mini sukkah.October 2, 2009 3:40 am at 3:40 am #661229
the oohra posters are amazing i have like 6 different ones up in my sukkaOctober 2, 2009 4:42 am at 4:42 am #661230kapustaParticipant
I know someone (Israeli, must be what they do there) who decorates their sukkah with different materials and fabrics and lights. Its gorgeous!October 2, 2009 5:20 am at 5:20 am #661231
I know a non-Israeli who does the same thing. Also gorgeous. She has fabrics hanging like drapes on three walls, and a tapestry-like fabric on the fourth wall. She also has pictures up and lots of lights.
Someone else I know has two chandeliers in his.October 2, 2009 8:07 pm at 8:07 pm #661232
Joseph, I do not put decorations on the schach
