|Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah|
At the end of the festival of Sukkot we also celebrate additional festivals, these days are also considered Yom Tovim, no work is permitted and we attend the synagogue for prayer.
Shemini Atzeret is alsof known as the ‘Eighth Day of Assembly’, falls on 22 Tishrei. The holiday, which immediately follows the seventh day of Sukkot, is considered a separate holiday. Simchat Torah falls the second day of Shemini Atzeret for Diaspora Jews. Israelis do not separate the two festivals into distinctive events.Please login or register to see the full article
