Women's Torah Reading for Simchat Torah, October 2 - 10:15 am

Please join us on Simchat Torah, October 2nd, to dance with the Torah and to participate in a women's reading of the Torah where all women can get an aliyah.

Hakafot (dancing and singing with the Torah) will begin at around 10:15 am in the main sanctuary, where women and men will dance in separate circles with the Torah. Immediately following hakafot, all women are invited to take part in our women's only Torah reading. We will repeat the reading of V'zot Habracha until every woman who wants one has received an aliyah. If you've never had an aliyah before and are uncertain how it works, don't worry, we will walk you through it!
