At the very moment we are about to conclude the reading of the Torah, a project that we have worked on relentlessly and religiously for the past year, we grab another Torah scroll and lay it down and, without so much as a pause, start again. Simchat Torah means that learning never stops, and it contains one of the fundamental insights of the Jews: “How can I be sad, how can I despair, if there is something more to learn, something more to know?”

_ Rabbi Lawrence Kushner
