Sukkah of the Signs

This afternoon, we went to Union Square Park to check out the 12 structures by the "Sukkah City" finalists. Though some were stunning and all were impressive, this one is my personal favorite. The two designers, Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello, constructed this Sukkah from cardboard signs they had purchased from homeless folks. I love the concept of the Sukkah -- a temporary shelter -- as a reminder of (or homage to) those who don't have a roof over their heads.
