Last Jewish Holiday Absence ‘Til Next Passover

By Debbie Schlussel

Tonight at sundown is the last of the Jewish holidays for a while (while Chanukah is upcoming, I don’t take off for that, as it it not that kind of Jewish holiday). The holidays that begin tonight, Shemini Atzeret (which means the “8th Day of the Assembly” and always comes right after the Jewish holiday of Sukkot) and Simchat Torah (which means “Happiness for the–-or of the–-Torah”) end on Tuesday Night. I’ll be out of live blog commission but have stuff I’ve written in advance for publication here on Monday and Tuesday, which I think you’ll find of interest and which is newsworthy. And I’ll be putting one or two more things up, today. To all my Jewish readers, enjoy the holiday. For everyone else, stay tuned. Y’all come back now, ya hear?!
