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 Friday, October 9, 2020. Dance with us for Simchat Torah (socially distanced of course) or watch from the comfort of your car. We’ll be distributing candy and caramel apples at 6:15pm and begin the service at 6:30pm.
We hope to see you there! RSVP to Faye Kotler.
Saturday, October 10, 2020 join us for Atzeret Simchat Torah / Yizkor Service at 10:00 AM.
RSVP to Faye Kotler to receive the link for our virtual service.
