Sim-What Torah? Simchat Torah -- A Meaningful & Fun Holiday

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

 

Simchat Torah is the Jewish holiday where Jews from all over the world celebrate the conclusion of the reading of the Torah,  and marks us "starting over" from the beginning of the Torah.  

 

Simchat Torah is the one time each year that the Torah is read at night.  During Simchat Torah,  each time the ark is opened, congregants dance and sing with the Torah scroll; it is a very joyous celebration where so many congregations include Torah marches and even carnivals!  

 

Here are some great resources where you can learn even more about this Holiday, some fun crafts to do and even more activities that make it fun!
