Warning: Sukkahs, Water and Electricity a Dangerous Mix

The Ministry of Trade and Labor’s head official for safety certification, Greisha Deitsh, is concerned that the sukkahs soon to be put up across Israel may pose a risk, News1 reports. Deitsh warned that many electric plugs, light bulbs, and similar items have not passed safety inspections.

Inadequate electric outlets can be particularly dangerous in a sukkah, which is exposed to water. In addition, many sukkot are made of flammable materials.
