Everyone now knows that social distancing is based on 6 feet of separation, or 2 meters based on the metric system. But how many realize that personal space was first defined in biblical times? Jewish law, halacha, references one's personal space as dalet amot, or 4 cubits, roughly equivalent to six feet or two meters. It's the limit of how far you may carry on Shabbat; the distance a male could walk without a kippah or other covering, the private space during tefillah.
During the coronavirus pandemic, if individuals from different households, or pods, will be gathering together on Sukkot, this Sukkah Banner will offer a friendly reminder to maintain dalet amot of distance between families.
This sukkah decoration is dalet amot, or six feet, wide... helpful to space everyone out at an appropriate social distance.

Dalet Amot Social Distance - 6' x 3'
This Sukkah Banner is dalet amot (4 cubits), or six feet, wide. Use it to maintain social distancing in a sukkah during COVID-19.
It's also 3 feet tall, but it's the width that matters in this case.
Sukkah Banners are durable, non-porous, 13 oz. gloss vinyl designed for the outdoors. Sukkah Banners feature heat-welded hems on all edges for durability and added strength. One-inch nickel grommets (that's what the metal-framed holes are really called) are installed, over reinforced hemmed edges, in each corner and along the top, bottom and sides. Ultraviolet-resistant inks provide vibrant, long lasting colors and prevent fading from exposure to sunlight.
In brief, this is top-quality material, designed to last many Sukkot seasons. Not like those flimsy, faded sukkah signs or posters of past years.
