Jews Fined for Building Sukkah on Property

from The Associated Press (Tishrei 5760)

(New York-AP) -- A Crown Heights, Brooklyn family has been slapped with a $5,000 fine for building a Sukkah on their front lawn. The fine was issued on Monday, Yom Kippur, by a city building inspector.

The New York Post says the homeowner says she's had the Sukkah erected every year during this Jewish holiday since 1993. The holiday is an observance of the Jews being protected by God as they searched for the holy land.

The woman calls the fine ridiculous -- saying everyone knows that Jews put up Sukkahs at this time of year. It will come down in a couple of weeks.
