Home Is Anywhere: Jewish Culture and the Architecture of the Sukkah By Mimi Lipis (Editor) Cover Image
By Mimi Lipis (Editor)


Biblical in origin, the Sukkah is a fascinating 1,500-year-old Jewish ritual of construction and habitation. Erected for only one week in the fall, its premise is paradoxical, as it encompasses issues of both diaspora and belonging. The construction guidelines are as follows: a Sukkah must have at least two-and-a-half walls and a thatched roof through which the stars are visible. Here, Mimi Levy Lipis' photographs record examples of contemporary Sukkah architecture from Europe, Israel and the U.S. These include a Sukkah on a truck parked in front of a restaurant in Manhattan; Sukkot on lonely parking lots in London; a Sukkah built for eternity in Berlin; criss-cross stacked booths in Jerusalem; and Sukkot made of the same fabric in London and Tel Aviv.
