Chicago Rabbinical Council alert on Schach from Home Depot for Sukkot 2020

September 4, 2017 from the cRc Twitter feed:

We understand from users of bamboo mats (e.g. from Home Depot) for schach that there is a reasonable chance that the result may not be kosher schach (as fencing material could become invalidated if reeds break), unless they place multiple layers of fencing on top of their sukkah.

Accordingly, we are no longer issuing specific recommendations of fencing material and suggest that consumers use traditional schach material such as bamboo poles, tree branches or mats specifically certified for sukkah use.
