Simkhat Torah, September 30.  As you know, all five area synagogues are participating together this year in the Simkhat Torah celebration on Sunday evening, September 30.  As part of the evening’s program, Beth Jacob members will begin the evening at Beth-El’s prayer location at the Crossroads Presbyterian Church, 70 Cross Road, Waterford, at 6:00 pm so that we can begin with 1-2 hakafot at their location. Then both synagogues will go to Emanu-El for the final hakafot, where we will also meet up with members from Ahavat Achim (Colchester) and Bnei Israel (Willimantic).  Rav Julius will be bringing one of Beth Jacob’s Torahs to carry during the hakafot at both synagogues.  It would be great if we can demonstrate a great turnout for the first time that Beth Jacob is communally, joining Beth El at its prayer space, after the Beth El community has come to Beth Jacob’s prayer space over the last couple of years. And given the travel arrangements for the night, we recommend car-pooling, which can easily be done by meeting at Beth Jacob at 5:30 pm..
