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, 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. Each reading has a name based on one of the important Hebrew words found in the opening statement of that passage. There are fifty-four portions in the regular cycle, as listed below. On Jewish holidays, special readings often interrupt the regular cycle.
