Yom Chamishi, 20 Nisan 5779

Atzeret-Simchat Torah comes just after the festival of Sukkot. Its purpose is to celebrate both the completion of the full year of readings from the Torah scroll and the renewal that comes with beginning that same reading cycle anew. We commemorate this holiday at Temple Israel with a two-fold celebration.

In the evening, an entire Torah scroll is unrolled as we prepare for the the next cycle of readings. This is part of a joyous service which begins in our sanctuary and ends in our social hall while dancing with the Torah scrolls. Participants enjoy live music from a rock band as well as food and drink.

The following morning, we conclude both Atzeret-Simchat Torah and the fall holiday season with a service in the sanctuary which includes Yizkor (a memorial service). This service is followed by a holiday luncheon that is open to all who wish to join us.
