Simchat Torah


Simchat Torah, Hebrew for “Rejoicing in the Law”, celebrates the completion of the annual reading of the Torah. Simchat Torah is a joyous festival, in which we affirm our view of the Torah as a tree of life and demonstrate a living example of never-ending, lifelong study. Torah scrolls are taken from the ark and carried or danced around the synagogue. During the Torah service, the concluding section of Deuteronomy is read, and immediately following, the opening section of Genesis, B’reishit, is read.

Simchat Torah begins Monday, September 27, 2021.
Tuesday, September 28, 2021 join us for Atzeret Simchat Torah / Yizkor Service at 10:30 AM online.
RSVP to Faye Kotler for all services.
