"Don't think that I have come to abolish the Torah or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete."  Matthew 5:17

Kehilah Portland

 

A Messianic Jewish Synagogue

 
     
"For I will take you from among the nations, gather you from all the countries, and return you to your own soil. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your uncleanness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit inside you; I will take the stony heart out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put my Spirit inside you and cause you to live by my laws, respect my rulings and obey them. You will live in the land I gave to your ancestors. You will be my people, and I will be your God." Ezekiel 36:24 - 28
     

Parshah

Below is a table indicating the weekly Parshah readings according to Jewish tradition whereby the Torah is divided into 54 sections and read in the synagogue each Shabbat.  In addition to the Torah readings, there would also be an Haftarah portion relating to the Torah portion that would also be read.  As believers in Yeshua as the Messiah of Israel, we also include suggested portions from the Brit Hadashah.

There are 54 parshat because when there is a leap year (the addition of a 13 month to the Jewish lunar calendar) there would be sufficient parshah.  When there isn't a leap year and thus, only 12 months, certain parshah are combined and read together.

On Simchat Torah (Joy of Torah) observed usually in October, after Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles),  the last chapter of Deuteronomy is read.  Once completed, the Torah scroll is rewound and Genesis 1:1 is read, emphasizing the continuation of the cycle in reading Torah.  This cycle lasts for the entire year.

The table below will indicate the following:

  • Parshah number
  • Parshah name
  • Torah portion
  • Haftarah portion (Ne'vim = Prophets and Ke'tuvim = Writings)
  • Brit Hadashah suggested portions

In addition to the weekly readings, there are also selected reading set aside for the Feasts and other special days.  This page will include a separate table with this information.  The special readings are arranged in chronological order, based on the Jewish calendar, beginning with Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish new year) which falls during the months of either September or October.

The Brit Hadashah readings are considered to be suggested and in some instances includes more material.  

With regards to the Haftarah portions, there are different versions for both Ashkenazic and Sefardic readings.  The table below combines both and offers the longer of the two portions.

After each book we say:

Hazak, Hazak, v'nit'chazek!!!

Be strong, be strong, and let us be strengthened!!!
