Eigth Day of Assembly. Part of its duality as a holy day is that it is simultaneously considered to be both connected to Sukkot and also a separate festival in its own right. Those observing Shmini Atzeret may do so with prayers for rain and the beginning of Simchat Torah. It is encouraged to refrain from work and school during this period. Some students or employees may request scheduling accommodations in order to observe.
