Simchat Torah – Hachnasat Sefer Torah

One of the biggest celebrations on the Jewish calendar is when a new Sefer Torah (Bible written on parchment, to be used in synagogue services) is completed. The new Torah is usually danced in to the shul (synagogue) by the one who donated it, the Rabbis, and all of the members.

In this photo, the new Torah was read from the weekly portion, and then was lifted (Hagbah) for all to see.
