Shemini Atzeret | notes


  1. ^ In the terminology of the modern Hebrew calendar, Sukkot occurs on 15–21 Tishrei, and Shemini Atzeret on 22 Tishrei.
  2. ^ These are known as the lulav (branches of the palm, myrtle and willow trees) and etrog (fruit of the citron).
  3. ^ The hakafot of Shemini Atzeret are those of the Simchat Torah celebration, which occurs in Israel on the single day of Shemini Atzeret. Outside the Land of Israel, the hakafot are performed by some congregations on the night at the beginning of Shemini Atzeret,[22] and then by all on both the night and during the day of Simchat Torah. See § Simchat Torah below.
