                                Simchat Torah Hakafot and Torah Reading for Women

Monday night, October 5, to Tuesday morning, October 6

The Stanton Street Shul is proud to host hakafot (dancing with the Torah) and a Women’s Only Torah reading on Simchat Torah.

Hakafot (plus nosh) begin after Maariv at 7pm on Monday night, October 5th, and we will have separate dancing circles for women and men. We continue with more dancing with the Torah the next morning, on Tuesday, October 6th, at 10am (services begin at 9:30am), followed by Torah reading at approximately 10:30am.

Women’s Torah reading will be downstairs, with a separate men’s Torah reading upstairs. We would love to give all interested women an aliyah in honor of the yearly completion of the Torah reading cycle, so please come join us to take part!

Here’s our Facebook event for the festivities so that you can send the information to your friends:
And mark your calendars for the first of our series of Shabbat Women’s Only Tefilah and Torah Readings for the new Jewish year, Parashat Chayei Sarah on November 7th.
