The holiday of Sukkot concludes with an eighth day, when stock is taken of the entire holiday season. It’s essentially a day where we gather our spiritual chips from a month of celebration to carry us over as we embark on the more mundane part of the year.
It’s also a holiday in which we celebrate the completion and restarting of the weekly reading of the Torah that we do each week throughout the year. It’s a holiday where we focus on rejoicing and dancing with the Torah to celebrate its spirit and generational staying-power, as opposed to studying it which we do the rest of the year. Watch fellow Jews around the globe mark Simchat Torah joyously.
At CBI, we do a semblance of all the above, and it’s quite a scene to behold.
Please join us and bring your form of joy to the party.
