Simchat Torah

October 13

Simchat Torah

Simchat Torah (Hebrew: שמחת תורה) commemorates the joy of the Jews having the Torah (Bible and its instruction).  On Simchat Torah, many services read all five Books of Moses.  The last chapter in Deuteronomy is completed by the Groom of the Torah and then the first chapter in Genesis is recited by the Groom of Genesis.  Every Sabbath morning, a portion of the Five Books of Moses (Torah) is read in Synagogues in the presence of ten adult men(aquorum).
