In Hebrew language, Simchat Torah means “rejoicing of the Torah”. In the Jewish calendar, it is considered one of the happiest days. It puts an end to the annual reading cycle of the Torah. The first section of the Book of Genesis and the last section of Deuteronomy are read throughout in succession after a parade of the festival of the Torah scrolls. Singing and dancing also follows the festival parade.
Simchat Torah 2023 is on Saturday 7th Oct, 2023 (07/10/2023) in 1629 days
Noteworthy, with reference to the Jewish calendar, a holiday starts on the sunset of the prior day; meaning that Simchat Torah 2023 will be observed on the sunset of Friday 6th Oct, 2023.
