A Time for Healing

Just as the Children of Israel after leaving Egypt were healed by G-d before receiving the Torah, so today the season of the Omer Count and the month of Iyar are most propitious for spiritual and physical healing.

WEEKLY TORAH READINGS

Shabbat April 20: Today is the first day of the Festival of Pesach. During Pesach the regular cycle of weekly Torah readings is suspended until after the festival. For the Pesach festival readings, see the Torah Calendar.

Shabbat April 27:
On Shabbat April 27 the Torah reading in Israel will be ACHAREI MOT (Leviticus 16:1-18:30). But since in the Diaspora this Shabbat is observed as the eighth day of Pesach, that portion will be read in all locations outside of Israel on Shabbat May 4.

Diaspora: Acharey Mot Leviticus 16:1-18:30
Israel: Kedoshim Leviticus 19:1-20:27
