A Sukkah which is higher than 20 ammot high is not valid.
Why is this?
Rabha explained, it is written [Lev. 23:43]: “In order that your generations may know that I caused the children of Israel to live in booths.” Up to twenty ammot a man knows that he is living in a booth, but higher than twenty ells he does not know, because his eyes do not frequently perceive the roof.
