Simchat Torah, the annual rolling back of the Torah scroll, is a time-honored celebration.
The holiday of Sukkot is followed by an independent holiday called Shemini Atzeret. In Israel, this is a one-day holiday; in the Diaspora it is a two-day holiday, and the second day is known as Simchat Torah. This holiday is characterized by utterly unbridled joy, which reaches its climax on Simchat Torah when we celebrate the conclusion—and restart—of the annual Torah-reading cycle.
Rabbi Joel shares information and invites the congregation to view, up close, the Torah scroll on this day and shares information about the parts of the scroll and their importance.
How do we apply the Feast of Booths to our lives? How does Sukkot connect to the birth of Yeshua? How can we apply it to our lives today?

Yom Teruah or Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets) is the Jewish New Year and is "trumpeted in" with the blowing of the shofar. This holiday points us to repentance (changing one's way of thinking and being), to regather to God. The shofar will sound on the Day of the Lord when God gathers all His people from the four corners of the earth to Himself at the Messiah's return. Yom Teruah takes us into the days of awe as we seek Him and look at ourselves and what keeps us from Him.
