Simchat Torah

Children, Parents invited to Simchat Torah Service & Celebration

Thursday, October 12
Simchat Torah is the day that we end the annual cycle of the reading of the Torah, and then immediately begin that cycle all over again.

During the religious service, the Torah scrolls are removed from the ark and paraded in seven hakafot, or circles around the room. The service is full of singing and dancing and people carrying Torah. Little children may carry stuffed Torahs. Come and celebrate plus stay for delicious desserts!

Simchat Torah morning service: Friday, October 13
