Sukkah Soul was featured in Tablet Magazine
'Support System - a sukkah of tomorrow held up by its inhabitants'
Susan Shender first came to our attention as the creator of the SukkahSoul sukkah, a delicate yet sturdy construction inspired, in part, by the sefirot of kabbalah. In this sketch, she offers a sukkah held together by its inhabitants. She explains:
...My response involves the intersection of a quote from Deuteronomy, the layout of a page of Talmud, and the spirit of a graphic novel. Now, when dealing with conceptual ideas, reality is not always aligned with the vision. In this case, for instance, it might be tricky to eat in a sukkah when one is the sukkah.
'...and underneath are the everlasting arms...' Deut: 33:27 My hope for the future is that we all become the sukkah and provide support for one another. I use the Talmud page format in which columns of text maintain generations of diaglog. Our own arms become the commentary as we put our principles into action.'
