Crowds gather on Wednesday at the Western Wall in Jerusalem to celebrate the festive day of Shmini Atzeret marking the end of Succot.

In Israel, the holiday is celebrated in conjunction with Simhat Torah at the culmination of the seven days of Succot, while in the Diaspora the two festivals are observed separately.
