We hold a special Consecration ceremony on Simchat Torah for young children in our first grade program (and some second graders, too) within the Temple Religious School. This is the first year they begin their journey of formal Jewish education. In this way, we send the message that Jewish learning is special. In general, when something is consecrated, it is made sacred, set apart, dedicated or given a new purpose. We believe that through the ritual of Consecration, our youngest students learn that they are beginning a sacred journey, full of wonder, excitement and fun.
