The holiday of Sukkot ends tomorrow at sundown. This last day of Sukkot is also the holiday of Shemini Atzeret, which marks the beginning of the rainy season (looks like our weather will cooperate). Saturday night (October 10) begins the holiday of Simchat Torah, when the cycle of Torah is completed and restarted. If you haven’t seen a Torah unrolled – this is your chance to experience it. The evening is both an ending and a beginning and includes the last reading and the first reading. Congregations around town are hosting events, and all ages are welcome to dance with the Torah and celebrate. For a listing, check the new BoulderJews.org calendar of events (has links to specific events). After the fun, please submit your comments and photos to BoulderJewishNews.org. Shabbat Shalom and Chag Sameach – have a peaceful Sabbath and a happy holiday.
