Simchat Torah is the time when we celebrate the completion of the annual reading of the Torah. At this joyous festival, we affirm our view of the Torah as a tree of life and demonstrate a living example of never-ending, lifelong study. During the Torah service, the concluding section of Deuteronomy is read, and immediately following, the opening section of Genesis, or B'reishit as it is called in Hebrew, is read. It is a time for rejoicing as we dance with the Torah scrolls to the lively music of the New England Klezmer Conservatory Band. It is also a time for chocolate, as our Simchat Torah service is followed by our famous chocolate oneg!
