I heard in a class that there is either an prohibition or at least an inyan not to have a non-Jew in the sukkah.

What is the source for this?

Zohar in Emor. I saw it brought in the sefer Bad Kodesh (Rav Berel Povarsky) (Sukkos). That he learns the Zohar is excluding non-jews from the mitzva of Sukka. He happens to learn that it just means they don't get a mitzva if they sit in a sukka. But some understand the zohar that they shouldn't be in a sukka. He doesn't qoute exact place where it is, so here's a picture of it. enter image description here

  • Rather surprising because the gemoro says that hashem will be giving them the mitsva of succa and then bring the rain down and they will get angry about it. In avoda zoro. It just says they will come for succos not that they will be in succos. @DoubleAA

  • @Shlomy For some reason the picture from Bad Kodesh didn't show up in your post
