Simhat Torah
Traditions

By RABBI SAMUEL J. FOX

(Copyright 1974, JTA, Inc.)

ISRAEL, U.S.A.,
and EVERYWHERE

The Torah is -read in the
synagogue on Simhat 'Torah
night but it is .not read at
night any other 'time of the
year.
Basically, Jewish tradition
permits the Torah to be read
only in the day time. Simhat
Torah night seems to be an
exception. Some claim that
the reason for this is that the
Torahs have already been re-
moved from the ark for the
procession.sActually, the only
reason the Torah should be
removed from the ark is for
reading the Torah. Therefore,
once it has been removed
from the ark the reading is
not only permissible, it is
actually a must so that the
Torah was not removed from
the ark in vain. Some ask a
question on this statement,
i.e., if it is so, why Won't we
read from the Torah on Yom
Kippur eve when the Torahs
are removed from the ark-
for the recitation of Kol
Nidre? This makes the Torah
reading on the eve of Simhat
Torah somewhat enigmatic.
In this sense, -some venture
to say that the Torahs on
Yom Kippur eve serve as a
symbol either of the com-
munity unity or the presence
of a Beth Din to annul the
vows which is e f f e c t e d
through the recitation of Kol
Nidre. It is further possible
to state that tradition actu-
ally calls for the recitation of
Kol Nidre in the daytime be-
fore the sun sets at which
time the Torahs may be used
for taking oaths or the an-
nulment of vows. The pro-
cession of the Torahs on Sim-
hat Torah takes place at
night -and at that time the
reading of the Torah would
be the only function permit.
ted for the removal of the
Torahs.
The last day of Sukkot is
called Simhat Torah, but the
Bible never called this day
Simhat Torah. This name is
said to have originally ap-
peared in the early Middle
Ages. Some used to call this
festival day the "Yom Ha-
berakah," the day on which
the "blessing" (of Moses) is
read from the Torah. Some
early sources simply called
it the the "last day of the
(Sukkot) festival." S om e
called it "Chag Ha-siyym,"
the festival of conclusion
(of the reading of the
Torah, or the conclusion of
the festival.) It was in Spain
that the festival gained the
name of "Simhat Torah," ap-
parently because the Torah
reading is concluded with
festivity on that 'day.',
