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!
Answer:

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.
