On Simchat Torah the Torah roles are removed from the ark. People dance, walk and sing around the roles in great joy.
The habit of going around a specific object, Hakafot ("Circles"), is a memorable event that symbolizes the common cooperation and unity.
Usually celebrated on the eve of Simchat Torah, hakafot is performed again in the morning and on the eve of Shemini Atzeret.
Second Hakafot takes place in the second place, Yom Tov of the Diaspora (Simchat Torah in the Diaspora). It is a time when people take to the streets with Torah roles and dance again.
Celebrations took place throughout Israel, including the Rabin Square in Tel Aviv and the Kotel in Jerusalem.
