Simhat Torah

Simhat Torah is connected to the fall festival of Sukkot and was added as the last day of Sukkot in the 10th century. The holiday is about the ending and the beginning of the yearly Torah reading cycle and is celebrated with an evening of hakafot (parades) and morning of singing and dancing, in honor of the Torah.  For the Jewish people, the Torah is the most treasured possession. It contains history, law and values, and it details our relationship with God.
