Simchat Torah

From Reveler Rowyn Peel:
Simchat Torah literally means rejoicing with the Torah! The Torah is the central text of the Jewish people, hand-written by scribes on scrolls of parchment. On this day, we have reached the end of the scroll, and we must re-roll the Torah back to the beginning to start reading it again. This annual rewind reminds us to celebrate the knowledge and wisdom that has been passed down through the generations, from scroll to scribe to new scroll. Chag sameach! (Happy holiday!)”

Simchat Torah Concert with Seth Kibel

Enjoy this live concert from last winter!

“Traditionally we would dance around the synagogue together with the Torah. This year, we invite you to dance along at home to a klezmer concert by Seth Kibel, a tradition bearer in our 2019 Christmas Revels: ‘Celestial Fools’!”
