Welcome to Solomon Schechter Day School's Weekly Parashah Readings 5783 page, where we explore the fascinating and enlightening study of the Torah. As a prominent educational institution committed to nurturing a strong Jewish identity and fostering a deep sense of community, we believe in the importance of understanding our faith and beliefs through the teachings of the Torah.

The Torah and its Significance

The Torah, the foundational and sacred text of Judaism, encompasses the Five Books of Moses - Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. It serves as a guiding light for our community, offering invaluable wisdom, moral teachings, and historical narratives that have shaped Jewish identity and values for thousands of years.

Understanding Parashah

Parashah refers to the weekly portion of the Torah read in synagogue during Shabbat services. Each Parashah, carefully chosen from the 54 portions in the Torah, offers a unique insight into Jewish history, spirituality, and ethical principles. Our weekly Parashah readings at Solomon Schechter Day School provide an opportunity for our students and community members to engage in thoughtful discussions, reflection, and interpretation of these timeless teachings.
