TORAH READING DATES
ABOUT THE TORAH READINGS: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.
