About This Course

During Simchat Torah, we express as much joy and happiness as possible, through prayer connections, special readings from the Torah scroll and enjoying a party-like atmosphere of dancing and singing with the Torah to secure happiness for the year ahead. On this holiday, happiness is the key to our connection.
