Simchat Torah

On Friday evening, Oct. 13 at 7:00, we’ll gather for a celebration that includes several parades around the synagogue with flags and Torahs, as well as reading from the end of the Torah, unrolling the whole Torah to
view, and then reading the beginning. The readings are done under an impromptu chuppah held over the head of the reader and the person having the aliyah, who are called the bride or the groom of the Torah. Stay tuned for the news of who our bride and groom will be this year! We’ll punctuate our service with a delicious dessert, with candy for kids to take home for this sweetest of holidays.
