Simchat Torah: Why Do We Rejoice Over the Law? | Messianic Bible
In Israel, the Biblical holiday of Shemini Atzeret and the extra-Biblical holiday of Simchat Torah, a day of gratitude, are celebrated on the same day.
The Torah (/ˈtɔːrə/; Hebrew: תּוֹרָה, "Instruction", "Teaching") is the Jewish name for the first five books of the Jewish Bible. In Hebrew the five books are named by the first phrase in the text: Bereshit ("In [the] beginning", Genesis), Shemot ("Names", Exodus), Vayikra ("He called", Leviticus), Bamidbar ("In the desert", Numbers) and Devarim ("Words", Deuteronomy).
Rimmonim (literally, “pomegranates”) are the finials that top the Torah scroll, which is wound on rollers called the “Trees of Life." These probably come from the Sephardic synagogue in Amsterdam, late 17th century.
