The day after the seventh day of Sukkot, is the holiday Shemini Atzeret. Shemini Atzeret literally means “the assembly of the eighth (day).”
Yizkor, a special memorial prayer for the departed, is recited in the synagogue four times a year, following the Torah reading on the last day of Passover, on the second day of Shavuot, on Shemini Atzeret and on Yom Kippur.
