Simchat Torah
Start Date: 10/1/2018 All Day
End Date: 10/1/2018

Event Description:
Jewish holyday begins at sundown. After the festival of Sukkot, which commemorates when the Israelites wandered in the desert for 40 years and G-d gave Moses the Torah, Simchat Torah (Rejoicing in the Law) marks the end of the annual cycle of Torah readings. The Torah scrolls are taken from the Ark and carried in a procession, with singing and dancing, around the synagogue seven times, to celebrate the way Jews incorporate the Torah into their lives. The last book of D’varim (Deuteronomy) is read followed by the first book of B'reishit (Genesis), starting the cycle of Torah reading again.[i]
