Simchat Torah is the holiday where we celebrate the year-long cycle of reading Torah from beginning to end. This celebration is for all ages! What’s the best way to celebrate Simchat Torah?
Singing! Yes, that’s why we invited David Sparr, music director, and Josh Cohen.
Dancing! Yes, we’ll dance on Beacon Street with the Torah! We will be accompanied by the Klezmer band Too Klez for Comfort.
Community! We will unroll the Torah and surround our entire community in its teachings.
Teaching! We will mark the beginning of another school year. Our grade-six children will become our teachers as they find “their” place in the Torah and begin preparations for b’nei mitzvah.
Chanting! Yes, hear how to chant the last and first verses of the Torah.
Art! Yes, we’ll make fun Torah crafts during dinner.
Cookies! Yes, Torah is meant to be sweet, so a special oneg will follow services.
5 p.m. Community dinner (please RSVP for dinner)
6 p.m. Simchat Torah service featuring consecration, followed by dancing in the street and an oneg
Come celebrate the joy of Torah!
