Turn it over, you will always find something new in it! This we actually do as we celebrate Simchat Torah – expressing the joy of ending and starting the Torah anew. We will greet each other in the courtyard with klezmer music and then dance joyously in Guild Hall as we do the seven hakafot (circles) and unfurl the entire scroll. There will be a special bar for adults as is Chasidic custom, a live band, food, consecration for our new students and then we will conclude and begin again the reading for this annual cycle. Don’t miss this highlight of the year!
Please register online so we know how much food to order.
