Building a Tent on Yom Kippur for a Puppet Show for Kids


Brooklyn, NY

We are planning on having a puppet show for kids on Yom Kippur. The plan is to build a small camping tent, that they’ve cut out a wall from which they rigged in such a way that it would serve as their stage for the puppet show. (The performers are in the tent, and the audience watching sees what’s happening through the cut out wall).

In its basic form it’s a classic camping tent, that you’d get for camping , with poles etc.

Is building a tent like that, which is meant to be taken down a problem of Boneh?


Yes. It’s a problem. (SA OH 315:1)
