Shemini Atzeret for the year 2014 is celebrated/ observed on sundown of Wednesday, October 15th ending at sundown on Thursday, October 16th.


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.


Thursday, October 16th is day number 289 of the 2014 calendar year with -4 years, -8 months, -1 day until Shemini Atzeret 2014.
