Beth Ami Temple held another joyous Simchat Torah service this year. In addition to marching around the sanctuary with the Torahs and waving flags, the Torah was completely unscrolled and held up by the entire congregation. While the Torah was unscrolled and being held up, Rabbi Lawton went around the room reading excerpts from each book; afterward, Rabbi Lawton, with help from members, rescrolled the Torah back to the beginning of Genesis. While all of this was happening, Cantor Mike and our accompanist Lorraine Greenberg provided a backdrop of lively traditional tunes. Click/tap here to see a video of the unscrolling of the Torah.
