Simchat Torah, which means "Rejoicing in the Torah," marks the completion of the annual cycle of weekly Torah readings. On Simchat Torah, we read the last Torah portion, then proceed immediately to the first chapter of Genesis, reminding us that the Torah is a circle, and never ends.
This completion of the readings is a time of great celebration. Join us in our high-spirited singing and dancing as we process around the synagogue carrying Torah scrolls, and then indulge in make-your-own ice cream sundaes. The celebration continues Tuesday morning with more dancing, singing and ice cream!
