sephardi torah/haftarah readings

Sephardi readings are often different. For instance, on Shabbat Pesach I, we read an additional verse (Joshua 6.27) at the end of the standard reading. 

HebCal does not show these differences. Which makes it an unreliable resource for sephardim. Which is a shame - as it's fixable. It would be great if you fixed it! Then you'd have a resource for all of Am Yisrael.

Also, I noticed the calendar for the month of Elul does not have the start day for Sephardic Selichot. There's only "Leil Selichot" the week before Rosh Hashanah which is the Ashkenazi custom 

Thanks for the feedback. We are still looking for an accurate and comprehensive source of information for Sephardi Torah/Haftarah readings. Can you recommend a source we could use? 


Thanks for using Hebcal, and thanks for this feedback!

We agree with you and would like to publish more comprehensive Sephardi Haftarot on the website. The regular weekly Torah reading already includes Sephardic Haftarah when it differs from Askhenazi practice, but we do not have the same sources for holidays yet. We do need an accurate and comprehensive source of information for that. Can you recommend a source we could use?
