The gemara in Sukka 4 speaks of Dofen Akuma (literally a "bent wall"). How does this halacha look/work?


1 Answer 1


Drawing from Peirush Chai

If there are less than 4 amos of invalid sechach (but not air) between the top of the wall and the valid sechach, halocho lemoshe misinai considers the invalid sechach as an extension of the wall (dofen akumah = bent wall) and the sukkah remains kosher although one cannot use the sukkah under the invalid sechach. (see here for more details.)
