Sukkah to Be Constructed from Mega Blocks in Miami

Two South Florida women are hoping to create unity between the many diverse cultures inhabiting their local area by having community organizations partner in the construction of a succah that will be classified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s largest succah made entirely out of Mega Bloks.

Over one million Mega Bloks are expected to be used to create the succah, a project of Connecting Our Cultures, a non-profit organization dedicated to using both education and hands-on interaction to create a more unified community, founded by Stacey Schrager and Gladys Mezrahi. Measuring thirty feet long by eighteen feet wide and fifteen feet high, the succah will be designed by professional Lego artist Jason Burik and constructed at the Dezer Collection, a North Miami Beach museum and convention center. Construction of the succah, which is expected to take four to six weeks, will begin in late August or early September and students from the Miami / Fort Lauderdale area will build the succah as part of an effort to foster unity between the many different groups that comprise the population of South Florida.
