Jews with Tents

I love it when tradition meets practicality. Last weekend, at my friend Rebecca Segall's wedding on a dude ranch in upstate New York, some friends pitched a sukkah in celebration of the Jewish holiday, Sukkot. Now, "pitch" isn't usually the word you use to describe putting up a sukkah--that would be "build." But this one, no mistake, was pitched. The friends got it from a website,, and it was basically a tent with a bamboo roof.

Overheard, from the (Jewish) groom: "Is this so Jews can camp?"
