Sukkah Project The Sukkah Project was a collaboration between the Vassar’s Office of Religious life and the Vassar Art Department. Sukkoth is the Jewish harvest holiday in which participants sleep in a temporary structure, built according to strict religious rules. The Project adhered to these laws while making constructions that were playful and modern.The small sukkah is built over the stump of a recently felled tree. The stump functioned as a table to eat at during the holiday and a symbol of the harvest.Matthew Kramer designed the red twine sukkah and built it in collaboration with five other students, Noah Lourie Mosher ’12, Kristin Regler ’12, Samantha Shin ’12, and Sierra Starr ’12 and project adviser Tyler Rowland '00. The team also designed and built a larger communal sukkah out of reeds and steel framing.
