Simhat Torah

This holiday, the “rejoicing of the Law,” celebrates the conclusion of the annual reading of the Torah (the five books of Moses) and the renewal of the Torah reading cycle. A feature of this festival is the joyful dancing of Orthodox and religious Jews with Torah scrolls in their arms, while chanting the concluding chapters of Deuteronomy and the opening chapters of Genesis. Children are given sweets at the conclusion of the synagogue services.

At this time of the year Israelis talk about “before” or “after the hagim (holidays).” Little is done before; everything is postponed until after. So if you plan a business trip between Rosh ha-Shana and Simhat Torah, take this into consideration.
