Simchat Torah (Tuesday-Wednesday)
Simchat Torah starts Tuesday night, September 28 -- we'll be meeting in Bennett Park
After 6pm Mincha, we'll have an hour of Torah learning.
Then starting at 7:15pm we'll bring in the holiday with prayers, dancing, and Torah Toasts ™. Torah Toasts is a chance for people (everyone!) to go around and share something about how Torah plays a role in your life. We'll also join to celebrate with a few neighboring synagogues!

Morning services will take place at Bennett Park from 9:30am-1:30pm on Wednesday. There will be dancing, there will be parallel men and women's Torah readings with opportunities for everyone who wishes to be called up to the Torah in a socially distanced manner. We'll also have Kiddush in the park, and special honors for 4 people who help carry our community.

Following services we will have a catered communal picnic at Fort Tryon Park at 2pm. If you are attending the lunch but not services, you can meet us at the Beis at 1:30pm to walk over together. At the end of the park we'll pray mincha (afternoon prayers), and we won't be gathering for ma'ariv.
