First Succot Glances

I took these photos yesterday in my neighborhood.  When I walked around a few minutes ago, many more succot were up, and many already had the s'chach (ritual succah roofing) on top.  Succot is one of those great holidays for photographers, much more so than Passover.  Of course, there have been years when I've found what to photograph when cleaning for Passover.  Davka on Rosh Hashannah we had neighbors over to eat one of the festive holiday meals.  They're pretty new to Shiloh and hadn't been our guests before.  They surprised us by saying that they first heard of Shiloh when google recommended my blogs.  And then the wife entered my kitchen:
"I've seen your kitchen before."
My head was spinning.  How could she have seen my kitchen?  She had never been in the house.
"You posted pictures on your blog showing it all covered for Pesach."
Wow! 

None of the succot here are mine.

















It's amazing how quickly some people seem to be ready to live in their new rooms.  Will the Appease Now activists come and volunteer to help us take apart our succot after the holiday and put the peaces pieces away?

raises an interesting idea. Camouflaging new construction in sukkots

Let's see what they say in two weeks....

I would say that the Sin'a Achshav "people" will only help you take apart your sukkah, if they could also take apart your home and destroy all of it.

Actually, they would probably say that since you are not living in your home on sukkot, it shows that there is no need for construction.

THey would claim that you are violating the construction freeze and demand that the army arrest you all.

Shalom!
The IDF has destroyed plenty of "new homes" that very closely resembled succot. I'd say that at best any "suspicious" succa would be given demolition orders for the day after Simhat Tora.

Horrendous, and the Arbas continue to build without any limitations.
