Saturday, October 14
9:00 am    Simchat Torah Text Study with Yael Seidemann

Yael Seidemann has years of experience teaching Torah at Solomon Schechter Day School in White Plains. We are thrilled to welcome her as guest teacher!

Simchat Torah, as the name states, is a time to rejoice in the Torah. This is one of our most joyful services as we dance with the Torah. We consecrate our new students and BESTY Youth Group leaders as they stand on the bimah under tallesim held by teachers and leaders, and finally together we hold up the Torah as it is completely opened and we read the final verses of Deuteronomy and the first lines of Genesis. 

Come one and all to celebrate the renewal of learning in our community!
