One Year Torah Reading Cycle

Traditionally, the five books of the Torah (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy) are divided into “weekly parashot” (portions or readings) so that the entire volume can be read in the Synagogue every Sabbath over a period of one or three years.

One Year Torah Reading Schedule

Below are 151 Torah Commentaries written for the Triennial Cycle but arranged and organized, here, for the One Year Torah Reading Schedule. For a comparison of the Three Year and One Year Torah Reading Cycles, click here.
