29:35-39 Yom Shemini Atzeret (eight day) This day was a special Shabbat observance. Shemini Atzeret serves to conclude the holiday of Sukkot, although it technically stands as its own festival. In this way Sukkuh begins with a yom tov (full holiday) and ends with a yom tov, while the days in between are the intermediate festival days (hol ha-mo'ed).

Ecclesiastes  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

It is customary to read the book of Ecclesiastes (Kohelet) on the Shabbat of the intermediate days of Sukkot. However, should there be no Shabbat on those days, Ecclesiastes is read on Shemini Atzeret. The theme of Ecclesiastes is very fitting for this holiday, as it emphasizes that all of nature is a closed system, and life itself can appear to be a futile journey. The dynamic that fights off this sense of futility is the individual's relationship with God. The nature themes and the spiritual musings found in Ecclesiastes mirror many of the themes of Sukkot, and we are reminded of them once again on Shemini Atzeret as we close the holiday. The prayer for rain recited on Shemini Atzeret provides a further thematic link with nature and perhaps hints at the ancient Sukkot water libation festival.
