Simchat Torah

We celebrate this holiday at a congregational family Shabbat service with special Torah readings that enable everyone to see the readers complete the Torah and start anew with B'reishit! We parade and dance with the Torahs and consecrate our new Religious School students by calling them to the bimah for a special blessing.
