Make Simchat Torah Meaningful Think Jewish

    • Judaism

Every year on Simchas Torah, we sing and dance and experience authentic pervasive joy. But why is completing the Torah reading such a joyful occasion, don’t we do it every year? And if it is so special, why do we start over again as soon as we complete it? Why is there only one day in Israel and two days elsewhere? And does this extra day make Simchas Torah in the Diaspora more special or less?

Join us for a fascinating journey through this joyous, but enigmatic holiday. We will not only guide you through its many steps, we will show you how to do it yourself. We will discover the what, how, when, where, and whys of a day that is as deep as it is refreshing, as exciting as it is mystifying.
