With only 5% of Jewish American families erecting sukkahs, author Joshua Foer wants to find a way to reclaim the festival and have it speak to a new generation. The result is “Sukkah City,” an annual design competition which invites architects and designers to engage with the rules outlined in the Tractate Sukkah and create their structure. Filmmaker Jason Hutt (Orthodox Stance, TJFF 2008) gives us unique insight into how these eclectic competitors work, from conceptualization to creation. The twelve finalists stand in New York City’s Union Square and are judged by the public. Which of these unbelievably creative Sukkahs will win?
