The special status of Hoshana Rabbah


Tonight is Hoshana Rabbah, the last day of the official Succot holiday (before Shmini Atzeret and Simchat Torah, which are considered a separate holiday for many halachic purposes), and the last day of judgment for the year's rainfall. Many Jews wear Shabbat clothing for that day, to underscore the day's significance.

(Mishneh Berurah 664:9)

Have a great rest of Yom Tov,
