Shemini Atzeret
Start Date: 10/16/2014 All Day
End Date: 10/16/2014

Event Description:

Jewish holyday: Shemini Atzeret (the Eighth Day of Assembly) immediately follows the harvest festival of Sukkot, and marks the beginning of the rainy season. Numbers 29:35 instructs: "On the eighth day you should hold a solemn gathering; you shall not work at your occupation."[i] In Israel, Shemini Atzeret is one day, but in the Diaspora it is often two days; Simchat Torah is either celebrated on the same day, or on the second day.
