Don’t miss out on the fun- join us at Boulder Center for Judaism and bring your dancing shoes along for a night of Spirited dancing, and plenty of spirits as well!
This Monday, October 17, at 7 pm: Simchat Torah Buffet and spirited dancing, and the grand finale is Tuesday morning, October 18 at 10:00 am when we finish the Torah and begin again!
The joyous climax of Simchat Torah is the dancing of hakafot (lit. “circles”), during which we dance and sing with the Torah scrolls. In the words of one Chassidic master, “On Simchat Torah, the Torah scrolls wish to dance, so we become their feet.”
The hakafot are a memorable event, it is certainly one of the highlights on the Jewish calendar. It is a kid-friendly event; they should not be left at home! And you might want to pass on those uncomfortable formal dancing shoes for this participatory event; the comfortable shoes will probably be more suitable for the occasion.
These are all open to the entire Jewish community and free of charge, but rsvp is needed.
RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-494-1638.
The Boulder JCC has 7 events on tap for the Chanukah season! (Why not 8? Ask them!)
It is that time of year again! I warmly welcome you to cap your week with a magical Women’s Friday Night Out next Friday night.
