In the Hebrew language, Simhat Torah means "The Joy of the Torah". This day is as considered one of the most beautiful days in the Jewish calendar. It marks the end of the annual reading cycle of Torah. The first section of the Book of Genesis and the last section of the Book of Deuteronomy are read successively after a festival in which people walk while carrying the scrolls of the Torah. They also sing and dance after attending the parade.
