CSAIR Torah Stroll

This Simchat Torah, join in our community socially distant Torah stroll!

Here’s How
Sign up for a Torah Portion (email Abby Pitkowsky to sign up)

  • Decorate a lawn sign (provided by the shul) or on a large piece of paper.
  • Place your finished production your lawn or on an outside facing window in your home.
  • Pictures can also be brought to CSAIR where they will be displayed outside the building.

We will create a map to give out and over the holiday that you can use to take a stroll through all the parshas! Tune into your inner artist. For those with houses feel free to decorate your whole lawn. Engage your children. Have some solo creative time. Revisit your bar/bat mitzvah portion, or select one that's unfamiliar. Questions? Email Abby Pitkoskwy.




In order to make sukkot into zman simchateinu, a time of joy, CSAIR will offer the following options for being inside of a sukkah.



Candy for Kids!
Sunday, October 11

Candy on Simchat Torah is a Riverdale tradition. While we will not be sharing and trading candy in shul during the Simchat Torah Hakafot this year, we have prepared special bags of candy for all CSAIR families. You can stop by the shul on Sunday between 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM after your Torah Stroll to collect your family’s candy bag. Rabbi Katz, Cantor Stevens, Rabbi Greenberg and Mason will be there in shifts to say chag sameach!
