In Eretz Yisrael, Shemini Atseret and Simchat Torah are celebrated on the same day. This year they begin on Sunday evening and Monday, the night of 30 September and the day of 1 October.


By contrast, outside Eretz Yisrael, Shemini Atseret and Simchat Torah are celebrated on separate days. This year Shemini Atseret is on Monday 1 October and Simchat Torah is on Tuesday 2 October.
