Torah Reading Schedule

The following is a table of the torah portions (parasha) that are read in all Jewish synagogues each week all over the world. The lectionary goes through the entire Torah once each year. Along with the Torah reading, usually a reading from the prophets is read, called the Haftorah. Some Christians who are studying also read an accompanying New Testament portion as well. On feast days it is traditional to read other texts as well.

In the table below, each parasha title links to the World ORT website, a Jewish site where you can read the text in English and Hebrew. It will even pronounce it for you in Hebrew! Also, the text references link to the Bible study tools section at Crosswalk.com, an excellent Bible reference site.
