|Halacha - Succah|
|Submitted by I.Lewis Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
|Question: When do we finally leave the Succah?
|Answer: In Israel we eat our last meal in the Sukka on Hoshana Rabba which is the 20th of October. Outside Eretz Yisroel where you have 2 days of Yom Tov there are different minhagim; some eat the entire meal on Shmini Atzeres the 21st of October in the Sukka while others make kiddush in the Sukka and eat the meal inside. In any event we don't sleep in the Sukka after the the 20th.

All meals eaten at any time on Hoshana Rabba must be eaten only in the Sukka.
