Join Temple Anshe Amunim as we celebrate Simchat Torah with a family-friendly service on Sunday, October 23 at 5:00 p.m. This event is open to the public with a dinner to follow. Those wishing to attend the dinner (Adults $18, Children 12 and under $10, Family Maximum $40) are asked to R.S.V.P. to the Temple office by October 18.

Participants of all ages will lend their talents to the service, which will include music and readings. Simchat Torah celebrates our reaching the end of the annual Torah-reading cycle. There will be joyous dancing with the Torah scrolls around the sanctuary. The highlight of Temple Anshe Amunim’s service is a reading from the last Torah portion, after which the congregation will unroll the entire scroll around the periphery of the sanctuary. Rabbi Josh Breindel will point out interesting features from the text, then re-roll the scroll and read from the beginning portion in Genesis. The service will include a consecration for new Religious School students and blessings for learners of all ages as we begin the new academic year.

Major funding for this event is provided by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. Additional thanks are extended to Keith Halperin and Karen Grabow for their gift in loving memory of Henry and Dorothy Halperin.
