Simchat Torah service at Temple Emanuel, Cherry Hill, NJ, on October 7 included a Torah hakafah (procession) and the unrolling of one of our oldest Torah scrolls, a 250-year old Czechoslovakian Torah that survived the Holocaust. It’s the first time in many years that we’ve completely unrolled a Torah, and members chanted from each book in the Torah. See the video below.

Watch a short video of the Torah being unrolled. Members of the congregation took part in chanting from each book of the Torah during the service.
