Jewish - Calendar & Torah Torah Commentary and Resources

Table of Torah Portions

In the table below (adapted from a table in a Wikipedia article), a portion that may be combined with the following portion, to compensate for the changing number of weeks in the lunisolar year, is marked with an asterisk. The dates given are for diaspora observance.

Also note that many of the links are not active. Over time I will mark which links work and do not work.
