Tuesday, October 2nd, 9am Simchat Torah Service with Contemplative Hakafot with Rabbi Ebn Leader
Experience the "Hakafot" the way they were envisioned in the mystical tradition as a mystical/meditational practice

Rabbi Ebn Leader will lead Hakafot at TBZ again this year, and try to facilitate a process in which the dancing and chanting of Simchat Torah is a preparation for the central element of the ritual, which is the reading of the last words of Devarim and the first words of Bereshit. This leads to a more contemplative service than what most of us usually experience on Simchat Torah.
For each of the seven hakafot one song will be chanted, which we will sing for approximately 10 minutes.
Each one of the hakafot will be dedicated to one step through the symbolic sequence of sefirot from Hesed through Malchut. We will introduce each hakafah with an intention related to the specific sefirah.
