Helloooo, Our Shiputzim fans!
Several years ago, it occurred to YZG [aka “Mr. S.”] that our car’s sunroof would make a perfect mobile succah, and then last year, he decided that the time had come*.
Admittedly, there is less of a need for such a thing here in Israel, where most tourist sites have succot. It’s very rare to find oneself succah-less.
But – by his own admission – YZG wasn’t motivated by necessity. He was driven [no pun intended] by the “cool” factor.
And so, he set to work. He took lots of measurements [picture the scene in Harry Potter I where Harry is being measured for his new wand] and could occasionally be heard muttering obscure phrases like “dofen akumah” and “tfachim”. Finally, after consulting with various parties (that’s gormim – literally “factors” – for the Hebraically-oriented among you) and purchasing a new schach mat, YZG announced that our succah was ready for use.
Here, then, is our succah-on-wheels:
Of course, only two people can sit in the succah at a time, but it’s the thought that counts…
(Interior views of our
real stationary succah can be found in this post.)
And on that note, we wish you a חג שמח from the entire Our Shiputzim staff.
* Note: Those of our readers who’ve been experiencing withdrawal symptoms due to the lack of renovation-related posts will be relieved to hear that this post - like the popular Mishkan post – definitely pertains to construction.
Why weren't we offered to use it? We wouldn't mind taking turns...ReplyDelete
If you come on a tiyul with us next year I"YH, you're more than welcome to use our traveling succah.ReplyDelete

Toby - We used this mobile succah yesterday, and it really was very cool! Maybe I'll post about the experience...ReplyDelete
