Simchat Torah: The beginning of the end

The second of the two, writes Zipple columnist Nurianne Tomas, is one of the most simply complex holidays of the Jewish year. "At first glance, it couldn't be more direct. We get to the end of the Torah, we rejoice and dance that we got there and we unwrap and rewrap and begin again. Simple, right? As my eight year old son, Vajih, would say, 'Yeah, right! Give me a break!'"
