SOUTH WINDSOR – Volunteers are needed on Sunday, June 24, to join a Torah Tiyul – a procession walking the Torah now housed at Beth Ahm Synagogue in Windsor to its new home in the ark at Temple Beth Hillel in South Windsor. The volunteers will carry the Torah, along with the four poles of the chuppah, over the 10 miles between the two merging synagogues.
Those who choose to do so may walk the entire 10 miles. For the less ambitious, the route has been divided into shorter, more manageable segments. Those who are unable walk are encouraged to join the processional at 10:30 a.m. on the Windsor Town Green, where a line will be formed and the Torah will be passed from person to person.
At approximately 2 p.m., a Celebration of the Union of the two Temples will be held at Temple Beth Hillel and the Torah will be placed in the ark. Refreshments, music, and fellowship will follow.
The Torah Tiyul will start at Congregation Beth Ahm, 362 Palisado Ave. in Windsor. Temple Beth Hillel is located at 20 Baker Lane in South Windsor.
The entire community is invited to take part in this important ritual and community celebration.
