Shemini Atzeret and Simhat Torah

Our tradition teaches that the season of teshuvah does not end with Yom Kippur; rather, it continues through Sukkot all the way to the end of Hoshanah Rabbah. In these final days, we are presented with one last chance to return—repairing what’s broken and immersing ourselves in prayer and introspection. Shemini Atzeret arrives as we take a moment of pause before the exhilarating celebration of Simhat Torah. Through our curated resources, we invite you to discover the many ways that we might prepare for the final days of this transformative season.
