Torah Reading: Parshat Naso

Next read on 6 June 2020


Portion: Naso = "Take Account" Hebrew: נָשֹׂא

Book: Bamidbar = Numbers Section: 4:21-7:87

Numbers is the 4th book of the 5 books of the Torah.

Naso outlines additional rules for priests and Levites, prescribes laws to maintain ritual purity in the Israelites' wilderness camp, and proclaims the words of the priestly benediction.

The same benediction, beginning "May the Lord Bless you and Watch over you", is
still recited in synagogue prayers and by parents to their children on Friday nights.

The Torah - the Five Books of Moses - is read publicly in synagogues every Sabbath on an annual cycle.
The cycle begins each year with Bereishit (Genesis), which is read on the Sabbath following the Simchat Torah festival.

Each of these weekly readings is known as a Parsha, or portion.
The Torah is also read in shorter segments of the Parsha on Mondays and Thursdays, and in selected sections on festivals.
