Current/Upcoming Events

Dear RTPV Community,

Join us this Friday at 8PM  as we celebrate Simchat Torah, the completion of the annual cycle of reading from the Torah.  Come help us fill our Temple with joy as we dance with our Torah scrolls  and usher in the new cycle of reading the Torah.   Music from Cantor Annice will enhance our festivities.

If we have enough adults we will unroll the Torah as much as possible and encircle all our children with our sacred scroll to symbolically represent our commitment to lovingly guide and pass on its teachings to them.   We will read the last verses of Deuteronomy, the first verses of Genesis, and also take you on a short “tour” of the Torah, searching for some of our most recognizable stories and prayers. Come celebrate the wonders of Torah and Jewish peoplehood!  

Wear comfortable shoes and come ready to dance! 

See the announcements below and mark your calendars with all our wonderful upcoming events.


Rabbi Altarescu and Rabbi Levy

Stay all night, stay a little longer

Dance all night, dance a little longer

Pull off your coat, throw it in the corner

Don’t see why you can’t stay a little longer.
