Jewish community of the week

Celebrate Simchat Torah
If you happen to be near to Andover in Massachusetts in the United States, then it may be well worth checking out the Jewish Center of Merrimack Valley run by Chabad.
Over the last couple of weeks, a rather fun viral video has been doing the rounds on You Tube inviting people to celebrate Simchat Torah with them.
Rather than being a straight-laced message showing some men in beards, this video was created Apple iPod style and features 'er some men in beards having fun, as well as other men, women and children getting into the party mood.
If the video is anything to go by, then the Jewish Center of Merrimack Valley is a pretty good place to enjoy being Jewish.
As its statement says: "The Chabad Lubavitch - Jewish Center of Merrimack Valley, was founded with an over-arching vision. Although Jews may embrace many levels of observance in their personal lives, there should be a place for all Jews - no labels, no affiliations - to develop a sense of community, to enhance the experience of being Jewish, to learn and to have fun. With tolerance, sincerity and deeply rooted values, Chabad can help you find that Jewish Center in your heart."
