s

aturday night marks the start of Simchat Torah,
a joyous holiday that signals the "rejoicing of the
law." It came about when the rabbis of old began
the practice of reading through the Torah in the syna-
gogue each year. This yearly read-through replaced the
former three-year cycle.
On Simchat Torah, the last part of one year's cycle is
read and a new cycle begins with the reading of the first
portion of Genesis. Hakafot, an encircling procession
with Torah scrolls, is a holiday highlight. It includes
children marching with flags and singing.
That got me thinking about Torah's role in our
busy lives. I love how Rabbi Alan Tolwin of the
Birmingham-based Aish Center puts it: "Torah is
the portal to knowing God's will."
Indeed, through Torah we learn about the essence
of God. So please take time to savor the goodness of
Torah and rejoice in our embrace of the law this
Simchat Torah.

Shabbat shalom!
