This is the first post in a new category – Weekly Torah Readings.

We are not sure how this is going to develop, so we really want and need your feedback on it! Please leave your comments below.


Every week, the Jewish tradition call for a portion of the Torah – the Five Books of Moses – to be read in the synagogue, together with a related portion from the Prophets, called the Haftarah.

For more information on both of these, see the Wikipedia and Jewfaq entry.

For a quick link to find out what this week’s readings are, click the green text on the Saturday in question at Hebcal.

Other good sources for plenty of study are, and If you know of other good sources, please mention them in the comments!

And now, after this long introduction, here is this week’s information!

This week we read Ki Tavo (When you will come into the Land), Deuteronomy 26:1-29:8, which mostly deals with the Firstfruits offering and declaration, and blessings and curses of people who keep the cammandments or don’t.

The Prophets reading is Isaiah 60:1-60:22, a wonderful prophecy of consolation for the Jewish People. It is part of a seven week series of Haftarot from after Tisha Be’av until Rosh Hashanah.

Happy studying!
