Biblical v. Non-Biblical

I've fixed some of them here but the distinction in general is somewhat misleading; Judaism doesn't make such a division. Moreover, the line isn't always clear. For example, Simchat Torah occurs on the second day of Shimini Atzeret outside Israel and on the only day of Shimini Atzeret in Israel. But Simchat Torah itself is not anywhere in the Bible. Simchat Torah as a separate holiday is pretty late and having two days of Shimini Atzeret outside Israel is itself not in Tanach. JoshuaZ 14:55, 18 December 2008 (EST)
