Simchat Torah Songs


Simchat Torah!
(Tune is a modified “Pop Goes the Weasel”)

Round and round the year we go,

Beginning and an end,

Round and round the sun we go,

With our Torah friends.

Chorus: Simchat! Simchat! Simchat Torah!

Simchat! Simchat! Simchat Torah!

Round and round the calendar,

Studying the scroll,

The days and weeks and months go by,

Filling up our souls.

Chorus: Simchat! Simchat! Simchat Torah!

Simchat! Simchat! Simchat Torah!


To the tune of “Put Your Finger in the Air” by Pete Seeger.

Put the Torah in the air, in the air,
Put the Torah in the air, in the air,
Put the Torah in the air, tell me, how’s it feel up there?
Put the Torah in the air, in the air.

(repeat) Put the Lulav in the air, in the air, etc.

(repeat) Put your finger in the air.


For Simchat Torah, the song, “Turning the Torah Scrolls Around,” by Karen Daniel on the cassette tape Teachable, Sing-able and Jewish: Songs for Shabbat and Holidays.  Kids can twirl around and around as the Torah is being turned back to the beginning to start the year again!  There is also a great song on the tape for Chanukah; it’s called The Potato Song.  There is also a song for Purim called Stomp, Stomp, Stomp, and also several good songs for Shabbat, including: What do you do on Shabbat, on Shabbat? (which is very interactive.)
