This week’s Torah Reading
Please click here to view or print out a copy for yourself, if you prefer, of the complete list of Torah Parashot (Torah Portions) for 2016/2017. The Torah reading cycle traditionally begins on the Shabbat following Yom Shemini (The Eighth Day), which will be in our months of September or October. The backbone of this reading cycle are the five books of the Torah: Bereshit, Shemot, Wayyikra, Bemidbar and Devarim.
