Kids' Activities for Simchat Torah

After the High Holidays,  Sukkot, and  Shemini Atzeret, it’s time for  Simchat Torah, the "Celebration of the Torah." On this special day, Jewish people around the world celebrate the completion of the annual cycle of the Torah reading. Many synagogues even unroll the entire Torah scroll for everyone to look at.

Since Simchat Torah is a joyful holiday, there are lots of wonderful ways to involve kids. Traditionally families dance, decorate flags, and start the next annual cycle of reading. Here are seven ways to mark Simchat Torah with your family:

1) Re-read a favorite book

2) Wave a flag

3) Make a special treat

4) Dance
