Holding and Being Held
A Theology of Sukkot and Shemini Atzeret

Aviva Richman

Shemini Atzeret is the day after.  It is a strange holiday without any concrete ritual—known by the rabbis as the Holiday of Lingering, when the visit is over, but no one really wants to say goodbye.  It is a liminal holiday—coming between the fullness of all the holidays of Tishrei at the gateway to many months when, biblically, there would be no special days.
