The final two days of Sukkot are a totally separate holiday called Sh’mini Atzeret. Liturgy includes Yizkor and the prayer for rain.
The laws for lighting candles on Sh’mini Atzeret are similar to those for Shabbat. These laws also apply to Simḥat Torah.
Shemini Atzeret is a holiday that has left Jews puzzled for generations, but it’s really about our intimate relationship with God.
How does the imagery of water and rain connect Shemini Atzreet and Simchat Torah? What can we learn from this?
