When in doubt, spark the grill. We had a great time building a sukkah with an impromptu gathering of brothers with one shared goal…build a sukkah and make a barbecue. Although we ran into an obstacle or two, we worked together to overcome. We used a kit that you can buy on amazon or if you want to check out some prefab sukkot then you can walk in and pick one up at the Israel Book Shop on Harvard St. in Brookline. (or your local Judaica mega store if you’re not in Boston). In this basic overview we delineate six easy steps.
- Spark the girl and prepare the meat. Crucial.
- Build the walls.
- Make sure there is more skies above the sukkah than trees.
- Secure the walls from winds that might blow them to and fro.
- Roof it with kosher matting or other kosher material.
