Decorating the Succah


When we say that one should live in the succah "as he lives in his house", that refers to one's behaviour - sitting, eating, learning and sleeping, for example. It does not refer to the structure of the succah itself.

Therefore, one may use wall materials which are not the sort used for one's house. Also, one should decorate the walls of the succah even if he does not decorate the walls of his home.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:39:6, and see 5:40:4)

Have a great day,
