Sisu v’simchu b’Simchat Torah, utnu kavod laTorah
Rejoice and be GAY on Simchat Torah, thus we will give honor to the Torah!

Join CBST to make our 7 hakafot, 7 circles of singing and dancing with our Torahs. We celebrate the completion of the year-cycle of reading Torah, reading the last blessings of Deuteronomy, and the first awakenings of Genesis. Dance with festive music, and see the entire Torah unrolled before your very eyes. Families with children are welcome and encouraged! Come dance and celebrate the Torah with us!
