This is a lovely small book produced by the Museum of Jewish Heritage. It contains pictures of a very large Sukkah canvas hand painted by Steinberger in Budapest. This canvas was used to wrap the wooden walls of the family Sukkah. There are also pictures of decorative paintings that Steinberger did as enhancements to his family's Sukkah.

The originals were hidden in Budapest during WW2 and were brought to the USA when his family immigrated at the end of the war.

Beautiful addition to any Jewish home library.
