    I don’t understand how the Alter Rebbe never said in the Shulchan Aruch, , do Not sleep in the sukka ? Did the Alter Rebbe sleep in the Sukka ? We never even hear this answer or topic. The Alter Rebbe, who’s vision is the highest of all Rebbe’s, never saw that one couldn’t sleep in the sukka ? Really scary. Wish someone was just honest about it, and stop always hiding behind, minhag. Just be honest, it will be OK.

    The Alter Rebbe did NOT sleep in a Sukka. The Rebbe said so clearly to R’ Kanaha. He said: if the Mittiler Rebbe did not sleep in his Sukka its because he saw that his father did not. This custom is not written directly in the Shulcan Aruch only in a round about way regarding someone who is “mitztire” (someone who has pain) is because the reasoning is Kabalah/Chassidus based, and the style of the Shulchan Aruch is to keep to “Pshat” on the surface yet allow the reader to reveal the “Sod” as the Rebbe has brilliantly done.
