Weekly Torah Perashot
Included here are various vocal recitations of Biblical selections. Each Shabbat, a portion from the Five Books of Moses is read. A thematic corresponding selection from the Prophets follows, utilizing a different musical mode. On special holidays such as Purim, Shavu’ot, and the Fast of Av and others the books of Esther, Ruth, or Lamentations, respectively, are recited, each with its own unique set of notes and styles.
This is also a reference point for those wishing to hear and study the recitation of the first Torah portion that will be recited on the upcoming Shabbat service. It is also previewed each week on the Saturday evening, Monday morning, and Thursday morning prayers prior to the Shabbat portion. Eventually this will include the 1st Aliya (portion) for the weekly readings for the entire year.
