When to Take the Sukkah Down



About the Sukkah, I know when they’re supposed to go up, and how long they have to stay up, but I can’t find any direction for when they should come down.

Are there any rules I’ve missed, in scripture or elsewhere?

Thank you



  1. There is no defined time that the Sukkah needs to be dismantled. Once Sukkos is over, it can be taken down at your leisure. Of course, due to the fact that the end of Sukkos normally heralds in the beginning of the winter in the Northern Hemisphere, it probably makes sense to try to take the Sukkah down sooner, rather than later.

  2. Ah yes that makes sound sense – thank you!
