Simchat Torah 5784

8:00AM - 8:00PM  

Simchat Torah (October 24) meaning "Joy of the Torah," is a Jewish holiday that immediately follows Shemini Atzeret. It's a celebration of the completion of the annual cycle of reading the Torah, the Jewish holy book, and the beginning of a new cycle. During Simchat Torah, Torah scrolls are taken out of the synagogue's ark and carried in joyful processions around the sanctuary. People dance, sing, and rejoice with the Torah scrolls, demonstrating their love and appreciation for the teachings within them. It's a festive occasion marked by community gatherings, lively music, and expressions of gratitude for the wisdom and guidance found in the Torah.
