Simchat Torah and First Grade Consecration
Every year, TINT celebrates Simchat Torah! In addition to watching the consecration of our First Graders, worshipers roll out the Torah from start to finish. It’s a unique TINT tradition that gives everyone a chance to see our sacred scrolls up close and personal.
The holiday service includes the reading of the last portion of Deuteronomy (דברים) and the start of Genesis (בראשית). In addition, Rabbi Matt reads from intermittent sections of each book, and points out where each book starts and ends.
Smadar Lahav and Rabbi Matt read from the Torah scroll being held by Joy Gray and Avi and Eytan Shtoff.
This year, we celebrated Simchat Torah and First Grade Consecration on Sunday, October 16, 2022.
