Yisroel Loewy asks:

We learned that a Succah cannot have less than three walls but can it have more than four walls? Example: A Succah shaped like an octagon with eight walls.

Thank you,

Yisroel Loewy

The Kollel replies:

Yes, an octagonal Sukah would be Kosher.

The Shulchan Aruch (OC 634:2) says that a circular Sukah is Kosher as long as you can fit a seven by seven Tefachim square inside the Sukah (i.e. a Sukah with a minimum diameter of approximately 10 Tefachim (7x1.44)), and a circle, of course, is really just an infinite-sided regular polygon.

The Mishnah Berurah there says explicitly that a pentagonal or hexagonal etc. Sukah is also Kosher.

Kol Tuv,
