Shemini Atzeret

Shemini Atzeret literally means the “8th day of assembly.” It is a festive day after the week-long festival of Sukkot, and is marked by the annual prayer for rain recited in synagogue. In Israel and in liberal (Reform, Reconstructionist, Renewal) communities outside of Israel, it is combined with the holiday of Simchat Torah.
