If you’re celebrating the Jewish holiday of Sukkot this weekend in a tiny hut near your home, this may provide some comfort: next year South Florida will be home to a Sukkah so large that it gets Guinness World Records recognition.
New York and South Florida developer Michael Dezer, founder of Dezer Properties, is partnering with non-profit organization Connecting Our Cultures to build the world’s largest Sukkah made of children’s building blocks at 2000 NE 146th Street in North Miami, Connecting Our Cultures announced. It will be 30 feet long, 18 feet wide and 15 feet high at the site of Dezer’s forthcoming art and auto museum.
The Sukkah building will launch Oct. 17 at the Trump International Beach Resort, which Dezer developed in Sunny Isles Beach, and should be ready in time for the holiday next year. The Sukkah aims to raise money by soliciting $3 donations for each block used. — Adam Fusfeld
