Simchat Torah literally means ‘rejoicing of the Torah’. The Torah itself is supposed to be joyful! What would make the Torah happy?
Think about it – if you had a treadmill, what would make it happy? I don’t think that using it as a clothes hanger will do it. Things are ‘happy’ when they are used for the purpose they were made.If the Torah could talk, it would tell us that what gives it the most pleasure is when we study it, learn it and discuss it. That’s when the Torah truly rejoices. And because there is nothing sweeter in the world, there is no greater joy and fulfillment for ourselves than learning Torah (and making it happy)!
