New Cycle, New Year

The Jewish year ends and begins again with the festival of Simchat Torah – rejoicing in the Torah, which took place at the beginning of the week.
I didn’t manage to get round to posting anything for the High Holidays of Rosh haShanah, Yom Kippur or Sukkot, as we were moving house. But a new Torah cycle begins this week with Bereshit (Genesis 1:1 – 6:8) and in a few weeks the Church year will also draw to a close and begin again. 

So I will attempt to start posting regularly again and hope to have more time as we become more settled.

I would enjoy discussing the Torah portions and looking at different aspects and points of view with anybody interested in studying them.

(And I would love to know who painted the first painting above). If you know, please do tell! 🙂

Shalom!
