Halocho #235 - When is Zot Chanuka?

The Torah Reading for tomorrow - the last day of Chanuka - has 39 verses.
It starts from ביום השמיני in Naso and continues all the way past the end of the Parsha and ends with the first paragraph of Parshat Beha'alotcha which talks about lighting the Menora in the Bet HaMikdash.
The last paragraph of Parshat Naso starts with the words זאת חנוכת המזבח - as a result the last day of Chanuka is often referred to as Zot Chanuka.
