You know, lots of Sukkah companies put out these charts saying, "X number of people can fit in Y size Sukkah”, but really, it's more like how many people can be crammed in there! That's not the way to figure out your perfect Sukkah size.
What you really need to decide is what size table you want in your Sukkah. Thinking of an 8ft or 10ft long table? Cool! But don't forget to figure out how much space you want on each side of the table. Some folks are fine with just two feet on each side, while others prefer a comfy 4ft. It's totally personal. For example, if you're thinking of a 10ft table with 3ft on each side, you'll need a 16ft long Sukkah!
So, how do you know what size table is right? Easy. Figure out how many guests you're inviting and give each about 2ft of table space—that's comfy. Of course, you can squeeze chairs into less space or be generous and leave more room. It's all about what you want to do!
And hey, if you're getting a 10ft wide Sukkah, make sure your table isn't more than 3ft wide. That way, there's enough space for chairs and people to move behind. Happy Sukkah planning!
