Just in Time for Next Sukkot - A Complete Inflatable Sukkah in Four SIzes



Yarok Inflatable Sukkah
If you struggled last week to put up a sukkah made of wood or plastic panels and metal pipes and canvas and are thinking that maybe there's a better way to erect a temporary structure to last the whole week of Sukkot, there may be good news and a better way for next year.

It's the Yarok inflatable sukkah, created by an Israeli company that specializes in building inflatable tennis courts, swimming pool covers, and jumping bouncers. Now why didn't we think of that?

Pop-Up Sukkah
The Yarok isn't the first portable sukkah.

There have been Pop-Up sukkot and a PediSukkah
but they all had limited capacity (one or two people). 


This one comes in four sizes: 10 x 6.5 ft., 10 x10, 10 x 13, and 10 x 16, big enough for a large family.
PediSukkah

The sukkah is kept stable by an inflatable base that gets filled with water. The whole contraption inflates in 46 seconds and the included electric pump monitors the air pressure and reinflates it when necessary. It can be carried in a rolling cart and has been certified kosher by Orthodox rabbis.

Prices have not been made public, but we suspect that they will be known well before next Sukkot.

Check out the video and see for yourself.

  1. Convenient but it doesn't look like a part of nature or the natural world does it? How about a model with some flowering trees, plants and other greenery printed on the plastic, so the Sukkah doesn't look like it came from another planet? ;-)
