This photography book shows contemporary Sukkah architecture from Europe, Israel and the USA. Biblical in origin, the Sukkah is a Jewish ritual to build and live in. The construction guidelines are more than 1,500 years old: a sukkah must have at least two and a half walls and a thatched roof through which the stars are visible. Erected for only one week in the autumn, its architecture is paradoxical, addressing issues of diaspora and belonging. The photos by Mimi Levy Lipis display Sukkot plain and bizarre: 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, Sukkot made of the same fabric in London and Tel Aviv.
