Simchat Torah Great Torah Hunt

Simchat Torah will look a little different this year! Grab your bikes, scooters, dogs and/or walking legs and meet at the Temple Israel Parking Lot to grab your map! We have 5 different neighborhood hakafot (circles) to offer, each within a mile from Temple Israel. Stuffed Torahs and/or Torah signs will be displayed at various houses along the route; nestled in a bush, hanging in a tree, on the front steps, etc. Head on out to see if you can spot all the Torahs then come back to TI for a special treat!

Sunday, Oct 11th, 3-5pm [more info here]
