SIMCHAT TORAH 5782/2021

Monday 27 September – Erev Simchat Torah

The Great Alyth Simchat Torah Line Dance
(Choice of two sessions: 18:00-19:00 or 19:30-20:30)

Simchat Torah is our time to dance together.  And this year, we can!
Of course, it still needs to look a little different… we will be dancing outside on the synagogue forecourt (the joy of Simchat Torah needs to be shared with as many people as possible, not only with those who feel able to be inside) and we will be dancing in a different shape – not in circles, but in lines!
Each session will begin with a mini-ma’ariv before we dance together.  Cowboy boots are optional.

Depending on numbers, we will be running two sessions – the first beginning at 18:00 and the second at 19:30.
Alcohol will be served during the second session only.
If arrangements change due to numbers pre-booked or to the weather, this will be posted on the front page of the synagogue website by 12:00 on Monday 27 September.
At 18:00 click here to join online (Meeting ID: 817 2702 4125, Passcode: 785089)
At 19:30 click here to join online (Meeting ID: 813 1242 7923, Passcode: 785089​​​​​​​)

Tuesday 28 September – Simchat Torah

Simchat Torah Morning Services (from 10:00)
The choice of two Shacharit services to begin the morning:

10:00 
A more formal Shacharit service, including full Hallel and Yizkor.  Led by Rabbi Josh and Rabbi Hannah in the outdoor prayer space.
This service can also be joined on Zoom.
Click here to join (Meeting ID: 880 1154 6562, Passcode: 785089)

.
10:15 An informal service, appropriate for younger members of all ages, with a kids’ corner.  Led by Cantor Tamara, Rabbi Elliott and the Youth and Education team in the Leo Baeck Hall. This service can also be joined on Zoom.
Click here to join (Meeting ID: 811 4302 9597, Passcode: 649146)

.

The two services will join together at 11:00 for (line) dancing in the forecourt.  Followed by a Torah service including the reading of the end of Deuteronomy and the beginning of Genesis.  The Torah reading will take place in the Beit Tefillah, which will be opening for a service for the first time since the summer.  Those who wish will be able to view the Torah reading on the big screen in the outdoor prayer space.

This year our clergy will once again be reading the beginning and end of Torah.  We look forward to being able to nominate a Chatan and Kallah once again in 5783, when they will be able to celebrate all together with their family, friends and community.
