Beth Israel Simchat Torah celebration

(L-R) Rabbi Carla Freedman reads from the concluding section of Deuteronomy as Harvey Weiss and Ram Meyuhas help to hold open the unrolled Torah. Congregants of Beth Israel the Jewish Congregation of Sun City Center celebrated Simchat Torah to mark the completion of the annual reading of the Torah on Monday evening, Oct. 1. The Torah scrolls were taken from the ark and carried or danced around the synagogue seven times.

One of the scrolls was unrolled around the perimeter of the sanctuary and the concluding section of the fifth book of the Torah, Deuteronomy, was read and immediately followed by the opening section of Genesis. This practice reminds us that the Torah is a circle that never ends.
