Start the Parsha Earlier in the Week

Posted on | October 4, 2010 | By Administrator | 4 Comments

The Yomim Tovim are past and it’s a good opportunity to increase our Torah learning. How many times are we rushing to finish the Parsha on Friday night or Shabbos morning?

Why not start early in the week so you can research some of the questions you have and do a better job of learning the Parsha.

Here’s Rabbi Rietti’s outline of Noach. You can purchase the entire outline of the Chumash here.

    Wow, I wish I could finish the parsha.

    Much less on Friday night.

    Since the Parsha is divided conveniently into seven aliyos, it csn be studied one per day in the preceding week.

    My kids and I start the first aliyah of each parsha during the last hours of each Shabbos. That way we are finished by Thursday or Friday with a little time to review before Shabbos. Using this method makes it a very low-pressure situation and very enjoyable.

    Not for nothing, but going through Noach this week was much easier than Beraishis between Simchas Torah and erev Shabbos. :)
