Shemini Atzeret for the year 2007 is celebrated/ observed on sundown of Wednesday, October 3rd ending at sundown on Thursday, October 4th.

Shemini Atzeret, with Shemini meaning eighth follows the seven day holiday of Sukkot and can be considered the eighth day of Sukkot in many ways but not all ways. This day on the Hebrew calendar falls on 22 Tishrei. Many in Israel will celebrate Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah on the same day, however others in the rest of the world will celebrate them one day after the other making them two separate holidays with Simchat Torah falling on 23 Tishrei.

Why do Jewish holidays start at nighttime?

According to the Torah, the story of creation in Genesis says “And it was evening, and it was morning day one”, “And it was evening, and it was morning; the second day”, thus night comes before day. So for the Jewish calendar all days begin at nightfall and end the next day at nightfall including holidays.
