1. The Laws of the Height of a Sukkah, 10 Seifim A sukkah which is taller than twenty amot is invalid, whether it is large or small, whether its walls reach the schach or they do not reach the schach. However, a twenty amot tall sukkah is valid, even if all of its schach is above twenty [amot] because its interior is only twenty [amot].
2. If the sukkah is higher than twenty and הוצין (palms leaves) come down (into it) - if its shade is larger than its sunlit area it is valid; and if not it is invalid.
3. If the interior of the sukkah is higher than twenty amos, and one hangs pleasant things from it and because of that the interior is diminished, this is not (considered) a diminution. Therefore if it is reduced by pillows and blankets this is not considered a diminution, even if they nullify each other.

7. If one builds a shelf in the middle, if there is less than four amos from it to the wall on all sides it is valid with the shelf, even if it is higher than twenty. And if there is four amot between it and the wall it is invalid, even if the shelf is higher than twenty.
8. A sukkah that is not taller than ten tefachim is invalid.
9. If it is taller than ten and palm leaves come down into that ten tefachim space, even if its sunlit area is greater than its shade it is invalid. However, if הנויין fall down into it it is valid.
