Snacking in the succah on Shemini Atzeret


Because sitting in the succah on Shemini Atzeret is, on some level, a denial of the special Yom Tov character of the day (see previous emails for more on this), we avoid sitting in the succah other than for actual meals.

There are varying customs in this matter; one should follow his family custom. In the absence of a family custom, one should follow the dominant practice of one's community. In a case of uncertainty, one should consult his local rav.

(Mishneh Berurah 668:6)

Have a great Yom Tov,
