Weekly Parashiyot for the year 5777

This will be the fourteenth year of weekly devotional drashot produced by Messianic Education Trust. We give thanks to the Holy One, blessed be He, for His mercy for the past thirteen years' commentaries. As previously, each week we will b'ezrat Hashem publish a short drash based upon the sidra that is to be read in the synagogue during the week and on Shabbat.

The previous years' drashot are still on-line, and you can review them for the years 5764, 5765, 5766, 5767, 5768, 5769, 5770, 5771, 5772, 5773, 5774, 5775 and 5776. All the drashes for the years 5764-5770 are also available in book form. A complete index of all the verses used in the commentaries is available in the Scripture Index.

Next year's reading cycle can be found here.

Following our previous tradition, this list can be used as a calendar for all the readings in this cycle. Every entry will be shown from the start of the year, but only become an active link as the time for that parasha arrives.

This week's portion is Yom Kippur.
