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.
