Simchat Torah Congregational Celebration/Consecration

Sunday, October 16, 2022 21 Tishrei 5783

4:00 PM - 5:00 PMOnline and in person at Temple Sholom


Immediately following Sukkot, we observe Sh'mini Atzeret and Simchat Torah, a day during which we celebrate the completion of the annual reading of the Torah and affirm Torah as one of the pillars on which we build our lives. As part of the celebration, the Torah scrolls are taken from the ark and carried or danced around the synagogue seven times. During the Torah service, the concluding section of the fifth book of the TorahD’varim (Deuteronomy), is read, and immediately following, the opening section of Genesis, or B'reishit as it is called in Hebrew, is read. This practice represents the cyclical nature of the relationship between the Jewish people and the reading of the Torah.

Join us for a celebration of Torah and Lifelong Learning as we honor the consecration of our new Religious School students, install our Orr Shalom High School Youth Group Executive Board, and hear our teens chant Torah from the unrolled scroll!

Following the service, we will move our Torah dance party to Bettie Port Hall where DJ MC-Squared will keep us moving as we enjoy treats almost as sweet as Torah!
