Parsha Readings

Parsha Readings

Parsha Readings (Parshoit, plural form) are the weekly reading from the Torah – the five book of Moses. The Torah of Moses is read over the course of each Jewish Year and also has a reading from the prophets called Haftarah.

More Info about the Parsha Readings
Parsha is a weekly Torah portion (Hebrew: פָּרָשַׁת הַשָּׁבוּעַ‬ Parashat ha-Shavua), popularly just parashah (or parshah /pɑːrʃə/ or parsha) and also known as a Sidra (or Sedra /sɛdrə/). This is a section of the Torah (Five Books of Moses) used in Jewish liturgy during the weekly services. It is chanted publicly by a designated reader (ba’al koreh) in Jewish prayer services, starting with a partial reading on the afternoon of Shabbat (Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath), again during the Monday and Thursday morning services, and ending with a full reading during the following Shabbat morning services. The weekly reading is pre-empted by a special reading on major religious holidays. The Saturday morning and holiday readings are followed by a reading (Haftarah) from the Book of Prophets (Nevi’im). There are 54 weekly parashiyot (plural) or parshahs (anglicized pluralization) in Judaism, and the full cycle is read over the course of one Jewish year. 1

  2. 09/28/24 – Nitzavim-Vayelech – Deuteronomy 19.9 – 31.30
