Sukkah 25: Sukkahs, a Wedding, and a Funeral

Who needs to sit in the sukkah? Or who is exempt from sitting in one? One who is buys with another mitzvah is (often) exempt. Similarly, one whose eating is casual – for example, snacks. Specific cases of mitzvot exempt the doer from sukkah. Beginning with Kriat Shema. Plus a mourner burying his dead. Or the wedding party on the day of the wedding. Also, there’s no rejoicing in a place with no meal. Plus, the efforts to avoid seclusion outside of marriage.
