Shmini Atzret/Simchat Torah Schedule

Following the seven joyous days of Sukkot, we come to the happy holiday of Shemini Atzeret/Simchat Torah. Yizkor, the memorial for the departed, is also said on this day. The second day is known as Simchat Torah, during which we complete and immediately begin the annual Torah reading cycle. This joyous milestone is marked with dancing, traditionally following seven circuits known as hakafot, as the Torah scrolls are held aloft.
