Simchat Torah is the holiday where we celebrate the year-long cycle of reading Torah from beginning to end. This celebration is for all ages! What’s the best way to celebrate Simchat Torah?
Singing! Yes, that’s why we invited David Sparr, Music Director, Josh Cohen and our amazing Shabbat band!
Dancing!Yes, we’ll dance on Beacon Street with the Torah!
Community!We will unroll the Torah and surround our entire community in its teachings. The Ohabei Shalom Board of Trustees will be honored for their commitment and service to our congregation.
Teaching!We will mark the beginning of another school year. Our grade six children will become our teachers as they find “their place in the Torah” and begin preparations for B’nei Mitzvah.
Chanting!Yes, hear how to chant the last and first verses of the Torah.
Art! Yes, we’ll make fun Torah crafts during dinner!
Cookies!Yes, Torah is meant to be sweet so a special Oneg Shabbat will follow services!
Don’t miss Consecration!
For all students beginning formal Jewish education at the Ansin Religious School, we also invite you to participate in consecration this evening. You will receive a gift of Torah and mark this special milestone on the bimah!
