Succos is Z'man Simchaseinu, the time of our joy. The mitzvah to live in a succah is one that is both revered and beloved by Jews everywhere. A Yom Tov meal in a beautifully decorated succah has a unique capacity to elate and to elevate.
An entire masechta of Gemara and a number of simanim in Shulchan Aruch are devoted to the halachos of the succah. How a succah must be built and how one must live in it are governed by extensive halachos and a vast number of details.
This precious mitzvah is incumbent on all, including those who do not have the time or the ability to acquaint themselves with all of these intricate halachos. Furthermore, the modern world has brought innovative new types of succahs that were not discussed in the halachah works of earlier generations.
For these reasons, Rabbi Yosef Kaiser has undertaken to write this comprehensive work on the mitzvah of succah. The sefer leaves no stone unturned in exploring the length and breadth of hilchos succah, and in providing precise guidance on how the mitzvah is to be fulfilled in today's day and age. Extensive Hebrew footnotes trace the source of each halachah, from the Gemara to the rulings of the great halachic authorities of our generation. The sefer contains hundreds of such rulings, including some that were never before published. Full-color diagrams help clarify the concepts.
The Halachos of Succah is not only an invaluable tool for anyone looking to perfect his performance of the mitzvah of succah, it will also open new vistas for those who are learning Maseches Succah.
Includes dozens of full color diagrams.
