Is a name given to the ninth day of the Feast of Tabernacles among the modern Jews. On that day three MSS. of the Pentateuch are laid upon the desk, and three portions are read by three different persons, one portionr from each MS., the first closing with the end of Deuteronomy. Another immediately begins with the first of Genesis, to indicate that man should be continually employed in reading and studying the word of God.
