Simchat Torah Services & Religious School Ceremonies
Oct 24 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Every Simchat Torah, we have two very special presentations for our Kindergarten and 3rd graders. This year, we invite all of our families to join us at 6:30pm (Simchat Torah Celebration begins at 7:00pm) for our special Kindergarten and 3rd grade ceremonies.

The Beit Sefer ceremony celebrates the beginning of our Kindergartners formal Jewish Education. It is a group ceremony where our young participants receive a small replica of a torah to symbolize the start of their study of Torah.

The 3rd grade siddur presentation celebrates the 3rd graders receipt of a Lev Shalem siddur. This ceremony symbolizes the beginning of a higher level of commitment to learning Hebrew and the prayers of our faith.

After the presentations, stay and join GLT as we unwrap the entire Torah scroll and kids will enjoy a fun Simchat Torah lesson and craft.
