23rd day of Tishrei

Simchat Torah completes the High Holiday cycle as it marks the completion and the beginning again of the cycle of Torah readings. Two scrolls are opened, one to the last chapter of Deuteronomy, the other to the first chapter of Genesis. The scrolls are taken from the Ark and the whole congregation walks around the synagogue with them seven times, accompanied by dancing and singing.
