Shalom,

I saw the other Lectionaries available and was wondering if there was one for Parasha or the Torah reading cycle. I think I can just book mark www.torahportions.org in my favorites but it would be cool to have that reading cycle within Logos itself.

Thanks,

Avishalom

I'm not a Logos employee but I am close to having the Torah reading cycle to send to them if they are willing to work with it. They have put in the Parasha divisions.

What I'm have is the Parasha (1 year cycle) and Haftarah for:

  • Askenazic (full)
  • Shephardic (full)
  • Italian (partial)
  • Yemenite (partial)
  • Karaite (partial)

I've just started on the 3 year cycle which I'm comfortable that the Parasha is accurate but I'm still having trouble verifying the accuracy of the Haftarah readings. I've just found a source for the use of the Tellihim at which when entered in the table will be what I send Logos. An earlier response from Logos leads me to believe that they will create the reading cycle when they have the information and have verified that there are no breaches of copyrights.

And, yes, I am Catholic not Jewish. But I am interested both in broadening Logos client base and in exploring the influence of Jewish worship on Catholic and Orthodox Christian worship.

Shalom MJ,

Thanks, I pray that all goes well. 

 I hope that WWW.FFOZ.ORG puts some of their material in Logos format. Particularly their Torah Club.

When the new PBB comes out, all you need is their permission to convert their material and make it available. Contact me for the "how to's" once the PBB is out.

Hi I'm also keen on being able to to this. Not quite sure what the format mentioned is about...

Does anyone know if there has been progress on the possibility of doing this?

PBB is the Personal Book Builder. It hasn't been implemented for Logos 4 yet, but they're working on it. The latest official estimate of when it would be done is Second Quarter 2010, though there have been rumors of later (August or October).

FFOZ's material is commercial, so the likelihood of them granting permission to make the conversion and then make it available freely to everyone else is remote.

I think a deal between FFOZ as publisher and Logos similar to the kinds of arrangements Logos has with Zondervan or Thomas Nelson has more chance of succeeding.  But to make it worthwhile, both sides have to be convinced that there will be significant sales to make the investment required for conversion, justifiable.

Use the Compare Pericope tool under Text Analysis in the Passage section of the Tool menu

I'll add http://www.shemayisrael.com/parsha/index.htm to the web resources reading list if it isn't already there.

Edit: it is already there in the lectionary section. Others may wish to add other options.

Hi Avi

I just made a Parasha Reading Schedule as a Personal Book. If you want it let me know where to send it.

Cheers

You might want to modify your email address to something like avishalom before at cox dot net so that it doesn't get picked up by a spam bot.

Duh, it turns out that Personal Books feature doesn't yet support sharing them: i.e. they have to be recompiled from a docx file for each instance of Logos!  See Grainger's comment on this thread:  http://tinyurl.com/3nd9fqa

Anyway, I have uploaded the docx file for you here:  http://tinyurl.com/3ncab44

Fortunately compiling such simple books is really easy.

The Complete Jewish Bible has Torah Portions I like best  - from which I've made a Parasha PB.

However it seems what would be very handy is for "stop reading" / "read next" functions as in Laridian Pocket Bible CJB. Has anyone done this yet? ...or know how to do it?

Blessings to all from our Creator, Messiah, and King!
