Shemini Atzeret (Judaism)
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

Semini Atzeret, meaning the "eighth day of assembly," is celebrated after the seventh day of Sukkot. It is often explained that Sukkot is like a seven day party, where the Creator is the host who has invited his guests for a limited time. On the eighth day, he has had such a good time that he asks for guests to stay an extra day. Semini Atzeret marks the beginning of the rainy season. On this day, no work is permitted and a prayer for rain (tefilat geshem) is recited to bring healthy crops.
