Rabbi Michoel Pikovsky, a Chabad Chossid who resides on the 6th floor of a large residential building in Moscow, Russia, needed to get a bit creative in constructing his Sukka.
As the yomtov of Sukkos approached, R’ Michoel was faced with a dilemma. He was not allowed to build a sukka on the ground level, and building a kosher sukkah on his balcony was also not an option since his upstairs neighbor’s balcony is directly above his own.
With some ingenuity and experimentation, but nor before getting an engineer to certify its safety, he creatively designed a Sukka extending out of his porch unto the open sky above the city of Moscow.
