Shemini Atzeret custom #galicia


philafrum
 

A friend's paternal grandfather came from Bolechow, Galicia (now Bolekhiv, Ukraine).  He was wondering whether Jews from that town had a tradition of sitting in the sukkah on Shemini Atzeret (8th day of Sukkot).
 
Granted, this isn't the most conventional genealogical question.  Thanks in advance.
