So the sukah is a remembrance of wandering in the desert and living in portable structures, right?
Tablet suggested on Tuesday a remarkable invention–a portable sukah. Either this is the biggest “no duh” invention in Jewish history, or it’s truly innovative. Think about it. We build these structures to commemorate a nomadic existence, but then leave them in one place for the duration of sukot.
Tablet has this to say about their dubiously-innovative innovation:
In advance of Sukkot, we reached out to architects and designers and asked for contemporary reimaginings of the sukkah. Charles and Julian Boxenbaum, the father-and-son duo behind BUZstudios … [have] delighted us yet again—this time with their portable SukkahSeat.
I’ll admit. It’s pretty cool. I kind of want one. Full story here.
