Chag Sameach!

Here we are already at the end of the Holiday cycle. It has been a very full three weeks, we had Rosh Hashana, the ten days of Tchuva, Yom Kippur, Sukkot and Hoshana Rabba. So what do we end with? Simchat Torah – taking joy in the Torah. Why are we so happy on Simchat Torah? Because as soon as we finish the Torah we start it over again from the beginning. The Torah is G!d’s love letter to us and our final act of starting the new year is renewing our relationship with G!d in joy.
Chag Sameach!
Love,
Rabbi Yehoshua Ellis
