to study a little Torah. In terms of the Torah, this is a very special time of
year. It is the holiday of Simchas Torah which is a public reading of the end
and the beginning of the Torah. It done with great joy and dancing and delicious
feasts. It starts the evening of September 26th this year and it is a great time
to try out a new synagogue (no tickets required).
The coming weeks are the very first portions of the five books of Moses. They are some of the most
poetic and inspiring of portions. If you have never read the Torah from
the beginning, this is a good time to start Tiptoeing with me. With every week,
you will know that you belong to a virtual community who care about God and
learning God's Ways through Torah.
Starting fresh with the Torah's public reading cycle is especially good for those who feel a chaos in their
life, or a darkness or a void. This is because the world begins in darkness and
God brings in light. When you learn Torah, you bring light to your soul and give
it a recharge. When you learn Torah, you engage your mind and distract yourself
from negative thinking. When you learn Torah, you have something to talk about
with people who are also interested in Torah, religion and spiritual
Give Tiptoeing Through The Torah a try this year from the beginning or find a convenient study class on-line or locally. Tis
the season for fresh starts!
