Torah Light Reading Schedule
Jewish Year 5775 (2014/2015)

You can read Torah Light along with each weekly Torah portion (parsha) by following the schedule below. The Torah is traditionally read Monday, Thursday, and Shabbat (Saturday) each week. The dates listed are the last day the portion is read for that week (except for the “Concluding Reading”). As this year (5775) is not a leap year, several portions are combined. For more information about the Torah portions and the Jewish calendar, see Torah Light, pages 19–21.
