Installation of Chatanim
Tuesday, September 28 at 9:00 am Services

This year, we have a unique group of Simchat Torah honorees, who truly are paradigms of the message of the Torah. We will be honoring Rabbi Daniel Kraus with Chatan Torah, Rabbi Meyer Laniado as Chatan Bereishit and Cantor Chaim Dovid Berson as Chatan Maftir.

This will be a special moment of communal joy and unity, and you will certainly want to celebrate this moment. Please click here for the full bios of this year’s Chatanim.
