Parsha Talk Simchat Torah 5781

With the celebration of Simchat Torah this Sunday, the annual cycle of Torah Reading comes to an end with the concluding chapters of Deuteronomy [33 and 34] and immediately begins again with the opening chapter of Genesis [plus the first three verses of chapter 2].  So this week, my colleagues Rabbis Eliot Malomet and Jeremy Kalmanofsky and I rabbi Barry Chesler discuss the meaning of Simchat Torah as well as Sh’mini Atzeret, observed this Saturday.  There is never enough time to get to everything on our agenda, but we cover enough, I trust, to keep it interesting!  Shabbat Shalom, Chag Same’ach, and a great weekend to one and all!!
