Calling All Torah Readers!

As we did last year, I'm posting a list of the Torah and Haftarah readings that we'll need to prepare for Anshei Darom Retreat #7.

The Navigating the Bible II website provides all the information you need to prepare for reading a slab of Torah. Just click on the link to get there.

This year, we'll read Parshat Mishpatim during Shacharit services on Shabbat, with the verses appropriate for the second year of the triennial reading cycle. It's also Shabbat Shekalim, so there is a special Maftir reading as well as a special Haftarah. At Minchah we'll read three aliyot from Parshat Terumah.

Llne breakdowns are provided below, along with links to the correct spots on the Navigating the Bible site. There, you'll have the Torah script (with and without vowels and trope, so you can practice) along with links to sound files so you can hear how each line is supposed to sound. [The links will take you to the beginning of each reading. Use the "Forward" and "Back" buttons on the webpage to navigate to the other lines. Note that the website breaks its aliyot based on reading the full parashah, so our Kohen aliyah starts at the third reading.]

Shacharit - Mishpatim

Kohen - Sh'mot 22:4-8
Levi - Sh'mot 22:9-12
Sh’lishi - Sh'mot 22:13-18
R’vii - Sh'mot 22:19-26
Chamishi - Sh'mot 22:27 - 23:5
Shishi - Sh'mot 23:6-13
Sh’vii - Sh'mot 23:14-19
Maftir - Sh'mot 30:11-16

Haftarah - II Kings 12:1-17

Minchah - Terumah

Kohen - Sh'mot 25:1-5
Levi - Sh'mot 25:6-9
Sh’lishi - Sh'mot 25:10-16

The readings this year are all pretty manageable. None of 'em are excessively long (Chamishi is the biggest, with nine verses) so, c'mon, all you lehners and lehner-wannabes, let's see some volunteers! You'll have a chance to read Torah in a supportive and welcoming atmosphere - several of the guys have read Torah their very first time at an Anshei Darom retreat. Contact Matt Gottlieb [Matt (dot) Gottlieb (at) Century21 (dot) com] and sign up for a reading today!
