Simchat Torah

  • Celebrate Shemini Atzeret & Simchat Torah with the JCC

  • Come say a L'chaim!

    On Friday evening, October 9 we begin the 48 hour festival of Shemini Atzeret-Simchat Torah , the most joyous festival in the Jewish year when we celebrate the conclusion-and restart-of the annual Torah-reading cycle. On Simchat Torah we celebrate the special gift that G-d gave us - the Torah. Join us for one or more parties at the JCC over the holiday.

    COVID Precautions
    To protect our community from the pandemic, the JCC will be taking precautions throughout the Simchat Torah holiday. All Simchat Torah events at the JCC this year will be outdoors. We will sit socially distanced (families can sit together) and ask everyone to wear masks at all times except when eating. All food will be prepared under COVID food preparation guidelines and served in individually wrapped packages. If you are feeling unwell with any COVID related symptoms please stay home. 

    Please help us celebrate this Simchat Torah by sponsoring $180 for one event or $360 for all the Simchat Torah celebrations bringing the great blessings of Simchat Torah to you and your family for the coming year!
