Halacha - Succot
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: The walls of my sukkah don't go all the way up to the schach (the schach rests on a separate pergola frame), but they do go up 95% of the way. Is that kosher? Also, I have a non-Jewish co-woker that uses my kosher kettle. He pours the water in his non-kosher mug to measure how much water he wants to boil and then pours it into the kettle. Does that make the kettle treif? What about the steam from the kettle when he pours it BACK INTO the treif mug? Thank you!!

Regarding your Sukka, the walls do not necessarily have to reach the Schach. However, in this case, the wall should be directly underneath the Schach with no horizontal gap between them at all.

Assuming he only pours the water into his mug only when it is cold and clean, the kettle is not Treif. The steam rising off of his mug to the kettle will not forbid it. However, this arrangement is less than ideal.

Halacha - netting under schach
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Is it permissable to put a fly screen under the schach but not touching ?
Answer: There are different opinions on whether and how this may be done. I do not recommend it.

Halacha - Sukkah
Submitted by AA  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Hi I am redesigning my sukkah and was wondering if my three walls have to be touching. Its hard to describe in words, but i have a east wall, a west wall, the east half of an north wall, and the west half of a south wall. I am missing the west half of the north wall and the east half of the south wall. So its kind of like two "L"s with one upside down. Is this OK? Does it help that the two half-walls are both longer than exactly half so they "overlap" ie they both cross over the imaginary half line of the sukkah? The schach of course covers the whole thing. If its not kosher, can I fix it with a tzuras hapetach or something? If you could let me know before sukkos that would be great. Thanks!

As long as at least one of the half-walls is not shorter then 7 tefachim (approximately 22-28 inches) the sukka is kosher and needs no further adjustment. If both the half-walls are shorter then a tzuras hapesach is necessary.
