Simchat Torah Morning Services


October 13, 2017 - 9:00am


Hirsch Hall (downstairs) at Ansche Chesed, 251 W. 100th Street at West End Ave

Join us for spirited Simchat Torah morning services! There will be lots of dancing and ruach (spirit), and everyone will have the opportunity to get an aliyah to the Torah. Last call for aliyot will take place at 11:30 AM.

Please bring your own siddur and, if possible, humash.

On Simchat Torah, we will be honoring three community leaders who continue to serve the community with distinction and dedication:

  • Steve Melzer, Chatan Torah
  • Ariella Tabick, Kallat Bereshit
  • Meir Schecter, Chatan Maftir

Steve serves our community by coordinating weekly scotch sponsors, organizing our annual Purim Trivia Night, and co-organizing food and snacks for our annual Shavuot Retreat. Ariella is a leader on the Kiddush team and frequently opens her home to new community members. Meir coordinates divrei Torah, serves as a Shamash, and organizes all learning programming for the Shavuot Retreat.

We hope you will join us in celebrating their contributions to the community! To make a donation in their honor please visit
