Calendar of Torah Portions

The tables on this page indicate the Torah portion for specific days. Click the name of the portion to view Rabbi Shefa’s midrash and suggested practices from Torah Journeys.

These tables indicate the traditional Diaspora date for each portion. On holidays, the cycle is interrupted in favor of a special reading appropriate to the day. Because of the Hebrew lunar-solar calendar, there are some portions that “double up” during the shorter years to fit all the readings into the calendar. Those portions are indicated with an asterisk (*).
