    Devarim: The Words that Moses Spoke

    1 These are the words that Moses spoke to all Israel across the Jordan—in the wilderness, in the Arabah opposite Suph, between Paran and Tophel, Laban, Hazeroth and Di-Zahab. It is eleven days’ journey from Horeb by way of Mount Seir to Kadesh-barnea.

    Now Moses spoke to Bnei-Yisrael, according to all Adonai had commanded him for them—in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, after he had struck down Sihon king of the Amorites who lived in Heshbon, and Og king of the Bashan who lived in Ashtaroth and Edrei.

    Across the Jordan in the land of Moab, Moses began to explain this Torah saying, Adonai our God spoke to us at Horeb saying: ‘You have stayed long enough at this mountain. Turn, journey on, and enter the hill country of the Amorites and all their neighbors, in the Arabah, the hill country, the lowland, the Negev, and by the seashore—the land of the Canaanites and the Lebanon as far as the great river, the Euphrates. See, I have set the land before you. Enter and possess the land that Adonai swore to your fathers—to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob—to give to them and to their descendants after them.’[a]

    Bad Report and Poor Response

    “I spoke to you at that time saying: ‘I am not able to bear the burden of you by myself. 10 Adonai your God has multiplied you—and here you are today, like the stars of the heavens in number.

    11 “‘May Adonai, God of your fathers, increase you a thousand times as many as you are, and may He bless you just as He has promised you!

    Haftarah Reading

    Isaiah 1 : 1 – 27

    1 The vision of Isaiah son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah:

    A Nation Sick With Sin

    Listen! Heavens, and hear, earth,
        for Adonai has spoken: “Sons I have raised and brought up, but they have rebelled against Me.
    The ox knows its owner, and the donkey its manger, but Israel does not know, My people do not understand.”

    Oy, a sinful nation, a people weighed down with iniquity, offspring of evildoers,
        sons dealing corruptly!
    They have abandoned Adonai.

    They have despised Israel’s Holy One.
    They have turned backwards.
    Where will you be struck again, as you stray away more and more?
    The whole head is sick, the whole heart faint.
    From the foot to the head there is no soundness.
    Wounds, bruises and raw sores:
        not pressed, nor bandaged, nor softened with oil.
    Your land is desolate;
    your cities are burned with fire;
    your fields, strangers devour it in your presence—a desolation, overthrown by strangers.
    So the Daughter of Zion is left as a sukkah in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.
    Unless Adonai-Tzva’ot had left us a small remnant,[a] we would have been as Sodom,
        we would have been as Gomorrah.
    10 Hear the word of Adonai, you rulers of Sodom!
    Give ear to the Torah of our God, you people of Gomorrah!

    Mark 14 : 1 – 16

    Anointed for Burial

    14 Now it was two days before Passover and the Feast of Matzah. The ruling kohanim and Torah scholars were searching for a way to grab Yeshua by stealth and kill Him. “But not during the festival,” they were saying, “so there won’t be a riot among the people.”

    And while Yeshua was in Bethany at the house of Simon ha-Metzora, reclining at the table, a woman came with an alabaster jar of very expensive oil of pure nard. Breaking open the jar, she poured it over His head. But some got angry and said among themselves, “Why was this fragrant oil wasted? It could have been sold for over three hundred denarii, and the money given to the poor!” And they kept scolding her.

    But Yeshua said, “Leave her alone. Why do you cause trouble for her? She’s done Me a mitzvahFor you always have the poor with you, and you can do good for them whenever you want; but you won’t always have Me. She did what she could—she came beforehand to anoint My body for burial. Amen, I tell you, wherever the Good News is proclaimed in all the world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her.”

    10 Then Judah from Kriot, one of the Twelve, went out to the ruling kohanim to betray Yeshua to them. 11 They were delighted when they heard this and promised to give him money. And Judah began looking for a chance to hand Him over.

    Acts 9 : 1 – 21

    Saul Turns from Murder to Messiah

    9 Now Saul, still breathing out threats and murder against the Lord’s disciples, went to the kohen gadolHe requested letters of introduction from him to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any men or women belonging to the Way, he might bring them as prisoners to Jerusalem.

    As he was traveling, approaching Damascus, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. Falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”

    “Who are You, Lord?” Saul said.

    “I am Yeshua—whom you are persecuting. [aBut get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”[b]

    The men travelling with him stood speechless, hearing the voice but seeing no one. [cSaul got up from the ground—but opening his eyes, he could see nothing. They led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus. For three days he could not see, and he did not eat or drink.

    10 Now there was a disciple named Ananias in Damascus. The Lord said to him, “Ananias.”

    He said, “Here I am, Lord.”

Simchat Torah

Simchat Torah

The meaning of the Hebrew name :   The Joy of the Torah
 Meaning of the holiday :  Celebration of giving the Torah to Moses.
The Ending and Start of the new Parashah
 Pronunciation : The ch in Simchat is one of those heavy gutteral ones.
 Scripture Reference :  Deuteronomy 33:27 – 34:12, Genesis 1:1 - 2:6
 Date :  Tishri 23
 Foods :  Stuffed Cabage and other round foods further, no specific special food, just more big sumptuous meals.
 Activities :  Lifting of the Torah High and dance with it around the reading table (hakafot) men will receive an aliyah calling to read scripture.
This is a synagogue holiday with another really long service, but in the middle of it, people get up, process through their building with the scrolls and then dance with them.
The more traditional they are, the crazier they get with the dancing. It's also a chance to honor a lot of people by calling them up to make blessings on the Torah, because there is a reading from the end of the scroll—the death of Moses—and another from the beginning--the creation of the world. In some congregations the assembled people unroll the Torah scroll and stand in the middle of the parchment before they start the cycle again.
Holiday symbols and symbolism : The Torah scroll, flags that children carry, dancing people. 
Greeting :  Hag sameah (Happy holiday) with a heavy gutteral h at the beginning of the first word and the end of the second.
Or if you are really sophisticated, Moadim l'simcha, which means "festivals for joy."
You may also hear "gut yontev," which is Yiddish for happy holiday.
Fulfillment :  Jesus the Christ, Yeshua Ha'Mashiah the true Torah.
Scripture Reference :  Matthew 5:17-20, Jeremiah 31:31-34, Hebrews 8:6, 8:8-11, John 1:14

About Simchat Torah

Is the last of the fall holidays, arriving at the end of Sukkot.
During Simchat Torah we can be filled with joy and love for God, for the Torah and for the Jewish community.
The name of this holiday means “Joy of the Torah,” and it marks the completion of the year long cycle of weekly Torah readings (parshiot ).
Since the Torah is continuously read throughout the year, when we get to the end of Deuteronomy 34 we immediately start over by reading the first verses of Genesis.
By doing that, we show the unending cycle of Torah study.
As the Torah reading concludes at the end of Deuteronomy, everyone rises and proclaims: Be strong, be strong, and let us strengthen each other.

How is Simchat Torah Celebrated

Simchat Torah is celebrated with singing, dancing, good food and drink at the synagogue. There is no set home observance.
At an evening simchat torah2service, all the Torah scrolls are removed from the ark and paraded around the sanctuary in seven circles known as hakafot (Hebrew for  “encirclement”).
In some synagogues, those who are in the seats close to the aisles touch their prayer book (siddur ) or the fringes of their
prayer shawl (tallit) to the Torah as it passes by. In others, congregants leave their seats, so they may dance alongside the Torahs as they make the circuits.
Many congregations liven up the celebration with music and dancing as they circle with the Torahs. Children participate in the dancing and singing; some may carry flags and miniature Torahs. Carrying the Torah during the procession is an honor, often shared by all who are present. Some synagogues unroll the entire scroll in a huge circle, with people carefully holding the parchment

Jesus and Simchat Torah

Since Yeshua the Mashiach (Jesus Christ) is Torah Ha-Emet- the True Torah - we should likewise celebrate the Joy of Torah in our lives. Yeshua is the Living Torah, the Living Word, written upon our hearts so that we can truly dance and embrace the Truth given from God. Indeed, Yeshua did not come to destroy the Torah but rather to fulfill it in our lives (Matthew 5:17-20). As it is written in the Tanakh regarding the New Covenant: britchadasha

"Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant (B’rit Chadashah) with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law (Torah) in their inward parts, and write it (the Torah) in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more."

yeshuaTorahMadeLife (Jeremiah 31:31-34) This very idea is clearly re-affirmed in the New Testament (see Hebrews 8:8-11). As Christians, then, we have the greater reason to celebrate Torah, since Yeshua (Jesus) is of course the Central Message of the Torah-- its inner meaning and incarnation. He is the Torah made flesh (John 1:14), the faithful Mediator of the New and Better Covenant (Hebrews 8:6), and He does what Moses and the Sinatic covenant could never do, namely, write the Torah within our inward parts and upon our hearts so that we might truly be the people of God (Jeremiah 31:31-34). By means of His sacrificial death, the righteous demands of Torah are fully satisfied, and the LORD is glorified as both just and merciful (i.e., the justifier of those who put their trust in Him).
