A world-wide registry of Sukkahs available for public use has been set up, and is listed online at www.localsukkah.org.
The directory has been designed for Jews to locate a Sukkah near to them, so that they can go there to eat. The idea of this service is not to list every Sukkah, but to try and have a Sukkah listed for every area in which Jewish people may find themselves during Sukkos. The main focus of this service is to enable people who work on Chol-Hamoed to eat lunch in a Sukkah which is close to their place of work. As all listings are confirmed annually prior to publication, the benefit of the list is that users of it can be almost certain that the Sukkah that they wish to use is indeed available prior to heading there. The list also includes details of numerous Sukkahs that would otherwise remain unknown to many users of the list.
The list of Sukkahs began in 1994, as a local service to the Jewish community in Melbourne, Australia. Last year there were 434 Sukkahs listed, located in 26 countries. These Sukkahs were mainly located in shuls, schools, and businesses. The list also included some Sukkahs located in shopping centers, universities, and amusement parks. In Melbourne the service was initially nicknamed the “Sukkah at Work project”.
