5 most extraordinary Sukkahs around the world
Don't you just love Sukkot? It is such an important and special holiday that unites Jewish people all over the world and encourages them to leave their comfortable home for seven days and explore an amazing and spiritual experience. We all want our Sukkah to be both nice and comfortable as possible for us to hang out there, and also to enjoy some spiritual vibes as we spend time there. Different Sukkah decorations, posters, Jewish wall art, and other decorative pieces are vital for a Sukkah to be both meaningful and spiritual. But what if you have such conditions that do not allow you to get all the décor you want? As we keep the Mitzvah of a compilation of the Sukkah, let's take a look at some creative and extraordinary Sukkah's from the world that didn't have all the décor and art possibilities like we do…

2. Sukkah on the bike
Can you imagine a Jewish holiday on a tricycle? Apparently, some Brooklyn creative Jews can!
Holidays can be celebrated everywhere and you don't have to be limited by location or place, and that's what American Jews have proven to us.
They have made a modest Sukkah on a tricycle!
You know, you can too, grab a bike, build a small Sukkah on it and decorate it according to your taste and even get more creative with decorations, and include, for example, holiday symbols, Jewish paintings, posters of Rabbis or any other Jewish art that you like.
The tricycle Sukkah got famous quickly, and this habit has spread to other states in America too. How inspiring!
3. The sukkah of bravery
Are you afraid of heights? If not, a high Sukkah, connected to your window from the outside of the building can be quite extraordinary and for sure require some bravery. An unknown person has decided to build his Sukkah out of his window and attached it to the building from the outside as if it were a balcony.
It was made from wood and sincerely looks quite poor regarding any decorations, probably because it takes extra courage to decorate a Sukkah like that. But hey! It is very unique, perhaps even too much.
4. Sukkot on the top of the world
How far will the Jewish people go? Or better ask, how high will they climb?
We are artists, engineers, innovators and yes we are extreme climbers too.
Mountain false peak is half of the size of mountain Everest. Jewish extreme sports lovers, get there too and that is why Chabad emissaries decided to build a Sukkah there, right on the top of that mountain! They have made it of fabric so it will be possible to fold it anytime when the weather is not proper. Creative? Extraordinary? Totally.
5. Sukkah on the wheels
What would you say if you knew that your Sukkah can travel and bring a lot of joy to people who do not live near you?
That was the idea of the New Yorkers that created the Sukkah mobile truck.
Their mobile Sukkah was created in a truck, and it was written there with big letters "Sukkah Mobile" so everyone will know and will able to join this special traveling experience and celebrate Sukkot in an unforgettable way.
The truck traveled around New York and made a lot of people very happy!
