Halacha - Women dancing with a Sifrei Torah
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

The Rema in Orach Chaim 88 concludes that a nida should not touch the Sefer Torah. Since most single girls are niddos in addition to many of the married women, the Shevet HaLevi concludes that it is inappropriate for women to dance with the Sefer Torah. He writes that this is despite the fact that it would be a significant opportunity to strengthen the women's appreciation and love of the Torah, still it is not proper.
