Dear Friend,

Simchat Torah is coming! It’s the crowning moment of a holiday season that has spanned the full gamut of human emotion. The theme of this holiday is unbridled joy—sheer happiness.

But whose happiness is it? Simchat Torah means “the happiness of the Torah.” How do you get a scroll to celebrate?

Here’s a thought: The Zohar teaches us that Torah, G‑d and Israel are all one. Thus, when we rejoice in our connection to G‑d, He rejoices with us. And when we and G‑d celebrate together, we can be sure that the Torah dances right along as well.

So what are we waiting for? Let’s celebrate!
