Parshiot

In Judaism, we read the complete Torah in one year, every year, year after year, from time immemorial; from Genesis 1:1 to Deuteronomy 34:12

We believe that the Torah is a live document given by G-d to Moses. The Torah is also what is known as the Pentateuch, or the Five Books of Moses: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Each week we read a portion, or Parsha. We study it, we discuss it, we savor it, and sometimes we even argue about what it personally means to each of us.

The Torah is divided into 54 Parshas, or Parshiot, and every week on Shabbat we read a different one, according to the schedule below (for this cycle). There are only 50 or 51 Shabbats in the year, so sometimes we double up on the reading of the Parshas so it will always come out even every yearly cycle.

Below is the schedule for the year 5778 (2017-2018) reading cycle of the Torah not only at Temple Beth Israel, but with minimal deviations, the Jewish world over. Bereshit is always read the Shabbat after Simchat Torah, and Ha’azinu is always read on Simchat Torah.
