to honor

Gene Newman

Hatan Torah – Groom of the Torah

with gratitude for his dedication to our congregation’s ritual life through his leadership of the Minhag Committee

and

 

Laurielynn Barnet

Kallat Breishit – Bride of Genesis

for her devotion to facilitating participation during our Shabbat and holiday services.

On Simchat Torah we conclude reading the Torah and begin reading it anew. The honor of being called to the Torah for the concluding Aliyah of the year and the honor of being the first Aliyah of the new reading cycle are very precious. Reflecting the loving relationship of God and the Jewish people through Torah, we refer to the congregants called up for these honors as Hatan Torah, Groom of the Torah and Kallat Bereishit, Bride of Genesis.

Following the joy of dancing with the Torah Scrolls and honoring our friends Gene and Laurielynn, we’ll share in a Kiddush Lunch.
