Simchat Torah

Simchat Torah, Hebrew for “Rejoicing in the Law”, celebrates the completion of the annual reading of the Torah.

On Erev Simchat Torah the Torah scrolls are taken from the ark and carried or danced around the synagogue. We unroll the entire Torah around the sanctuary then read the concluding section of Deuteronomy and immediately following, the opening section of Genesis, or B’reishit as it is called in Hebrew.
