Russian term or phrase: succa
My friend is in Moldova and he sent me an e-mail with this word to try and figure out the meaning.

English translation:Bitch?
Explanation:
It's really hard, since no real translit standard yields such a spelling of an existing Russian word.

If he meant "suka" - bitch is the answer.

Maybe it was in Moldavian?

hut


Explanation:
In Hebrew, the word succa means hut. We are getting close to the Sukkoth holiday, which commemorates the time Jews spent in the desert. Each Jewish family is supposed to build a sukka and eat and sleep there for 7 days.

Maybe sukkah


Explanation:
If your friend is talking about building one, and if your friend happens to be Jewish, then he is probably talking about a sukkah (one of the varieties of spelling it), which is a temporary outdoor structure, used for meals and praying during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot.
