Torah Readings

The Parsha (or Parashah) is the weekly Torah portion read in synagogues throughout the world. It is read along with the Haftarah, a selection from other parts of the Hebrew scriptures, selected for thematic connection. We have also provided suggestions for readings from the B’rit Hadashah, the New Testament.

This week’s Parsha:

Chayei Sarah

(The Life of Sarah)

Torah: Genesis 23:1-25:18
Haftarah: 1 Kings 1:1-31
B’rit Hadashah: John 4:3-14

These are the normal parsha readings for an entire year. If a week falls during a holiday, the normal reading schedule can be interrupted by special holiday readings. As a result two parashot can be scheduled during other weeks. Visit to see a full schedule for this year.
