We’re Just Diggin’ It: The Talmud on fixing a sukkah that’s too small or short

Shifting away from prohibitive heights, and “bent wall” creativity; the Talmud now analyzes polar challenges of an overly diminutive structure, whose stifling confines don't allow settling into its shelter. Discover how we can dig deep to save our Sukkah and attain kosher status – but only as long as we're hugging the pre-existing structure by a mere few hands-breaths. See why the previously employed solution of a “bent wall” can't work here, as per insightful jurisprudence and brilliant hairsplitting distinctions.
