Re: Shemini Atzeret custom #galicia

Richard gave a well explained response for the general tradition as suggested in Halacha.

However, some places -especially Chassidim- had different customs regarding sitting in the Sukkah on Shemini Atzeret, where many did not follow the tradition of sitting in the Sukkah, as to not desecrate the Yom Tov of Shemini Atzeret by showing that maybe it's still Succot, defining the day as not so holy by not actually being Yom Tov.

Unfortunately, I do not know the tradition of Bolechow. But it they were Chassidim, there is a great possibility that they didn't sit in the Sukkah.
