Sign up for Shabbat Torah & Haftarah Readings

We welcome congregant participation in our Saturday morning Shabbat services!   Sign up BELOW for available dates to read Torah.

Torah Reading

You will prepare one aliyah of at least three verses.  A short aliyah would be about twenty words.   You can select anywhere in the parasha that you want to read.

Haftarah Reading

You will prepare a Haftarah reading of at least three verses. You can select anywhere in the portion that you want to read. You will also chant the Haftarah blessings before and after the reading.

Resources to prepare for the reading

If you need help preparing the reading, here are options:

  • For Torah readings, Cantor Sarra would be happy to help by providing an mp3 recording, a copy of your reading from the tikkun (showing the reading without vowels, as it will appear in the Torah), and/or assistance as you are learning your aliyah.  Contact her at cantorsarra@bethelohim.org.
