Sh'mini Atzeret

The eighth day of Succot is called Sh'mini Atzeret (the eighth day of assembly). On this festival the congregation offers a special prayer for rain. In the ancient world, Sh'mini Atzeret often fell at the end of the dry season, so the prayer for rain looked forward to good crops for the coming year.
