Consecration

Consecration is a ceremony we hold at Hakafa during our Simchat Torah celebration for children in kindergarten, as well as first, second, and third graders who are beginning their religious school experience. It is a very special ceremony in which students are blessed as they start their formal Jewish education. Because Simchat Torah marks our finishing of the yearly cycle of Torah readings, as well as our turning to begin it once again, it is a fitting time to recognize these students’ entry into the never-ending process of Jewish learning.
