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.
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.
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.
