Celebrating The Gift Of Torah
We just passed the holiday of Simchat Torah (“Torah‘s rejoicing”), the celebration of receiving G-d’s Torah as we finish Deuteronomy and begin our annual cycle of Torah reading anew with Genesis.

A Torah scroll is unfurled, and the first part of Genesis read.
Jews take out the big Torah scrolls that are usually locked up.
And dance and sing with joy that we have Torah.
