Each week, synagogues across the world read a section from the Torah (the five books of Moses). In Hebrew, this passage is called Parashat HaShavua (פָּרָשַׁת הַשָּׁבוּעַ), which means “portion of the week.” Sometimes it is called the parsha or sidra. The Jewish community follows a schedule of readings based on the Hebrew calendar. Over the course of a year, the entire Torah is read publicly during the synagogue services. Each reading has a name based on one of the important Hebrew words in the first sentence of the passage. There are fifty-four portions in the regular cycle.

If you'd like to follow this traditional Jewish reading calendar, here is a .docx file that has the Lectionary milestones inserted.  Along with it is the traditional Haftarah reading schedule which takes corresponding readings from the Tanakh.  A suggested reading schedule is also added to include the Apostolic writings. 

All you have to do is download the file and build your Personal Book.  Be sure to build it as type "Lectionary" otherwise it won't open to the correct date. 

The first reading is on October 17.

Genghis,

Thank you for your service in providing the weekly Parasha reading.  I'm surprised that Logos does not offer it - that I saw anyway, but this is amazing and I appreciate it.

I'm relatively new to using Logos seriously and I just upgraded to 9.  I see that I can add it as a card to my home page - at least I think I can but it does not show up.  Any ideas why or should I be able to add it as a card like other lectionaries?

Thanks!

Michael

TBH, I've never used it this way.  i just open it as another resource and keep it open b/c I'm using it so much.  I'll give it a go tonight and see what happens.

Thank you for putting this together.  Where did you get the "Apostolic" readings?  May I suggest using First Fruits of Zion, https://torahportions.ffoz.org/torah-portions/

Hi Ronnie, TBH, it's been so long ago, I can't remember!
