Simchat Torah Festival Service with Yizkor Prayers
Shemini Atzeret/Simchat Torah
The Torah has 54 portions (parshiyot) and is read all the way through each year. Simchat Torah celebrates the ending of D’vareem and immediately begins with the book of Bereshit. Chocolates and flags are enjoyed by young and old and our sacred Torah- a blueprint for how to connect with God and humanity – is celebrated.
