Description:

Shemini Àtzeret: Eighth and last day of the Jewish festival Sukkot; it is also work-restricted.

Reflection: The sukkah makes us think about our future and question the certainty of things. We leave our permanent domains and have a taste of impermanence, to remember how everything in this material world, no matter how good it may seem, is subject to the law of change.
