Torah Thought

On Simchat Torah we complete and immediately recommence the annual cycle of Torah readings. While the Torah text itself does not change, with each passing year we change. This change in ourselves allows us to see something new
 in the Torah each time we encounter it.
Our own growth and experience allows us to penetrate deeper into the Torah’s meaning and significance with each passing year.
This week, as we rejoice in Torah, may we redouble our commitment to engage with Torah, to wrestle with the foundational text of our people and to draw wisdom from it,
 for “it is a Tree of Life
 to those who hold fast to it.” (Prov 3:18)

Chag Sameakh and Shabbat Shalom,
- Rabbi Zylberman
