Shemini Atzeret! What makes this day, named for its connection with Sukkot, a different holiday? Beginning with the blessing of Shehechyanu, and reflecting on a variety of distinctions between the eighth day and the week preceding it. Also, delving deep into Bikkurim, including a discussion on the ne d to stay overnight in Jerusalem at the time of bringing Bikkurim. Note: the waving of lulav is reminiscent in the waving of Bikkurim.
