This past Sunday the class talked about the final holiday of the High Holiday season, Simchat Torah. The class talked about Simchat Torah to gain a better understanding of why the Torah is read from the beginning to the end each year. We talked about what the name of the holiday means (rejoicing with the Torah), talked about Hakafot (during the service we dance with the Torah seven times because we should be “happy” with the Torah!   Each dance is called a “hakafah” and seven different times, people hold the Torah scrolls and dance around in circles around the synagogue and sometimes outside. We also reviewed the names of the 5 books of the Torah. Ask your child if he/she remembers the names of these books. Looking forward to seeing you at the family education program this Sunday.
