chol hamoed pesach reading

ethan c goldberg 11 months ago updated by Michael J. Radwin 3 months ago 4

Hi,

In the torah reading spreadsheet I downloaded for 5783, the torah reading for April 10, 2023 (third day of chol hamo'ed pesach) is incorrect. The correct reading is given here https://www.hebcal.com/holidays/pesach but the spreadsheet did not populate correctly for the third day of Chol Hamoed falling on Monday.

Hi, thanks for using Hebcal.

We corrected the error in the Torah reading for third day of Chol Hamoed falling on Monday on 26 January 2023. If you downloaded the 5783 spreadsheet before this date, it contained the incorrect reading.

If you downloaded the 5783 spreadsheet after 26 January 2023, you will see the correct reading in that .csv file:

"Date","Parashah","Aliyah","Reading","Verses"

10-Apr-2023,"Pesach Chol ha-Moed Day 3 on Monday",1,"Exodus 22:24-22:26",3

10-Apr-2023,"Pesach Chol ha-Moed Day 3 on Monday",2,"Exodus 22:27-23:5",9

10-Apr-2023,"Pesach Chol ha-Moed Day 3 on Monday",3,"Exodus 23:6-23:19",14

10-Apr-2023,"Pesach Chol ha-Moed Day 3 on Monday",4,"Numbers 28:19-28:25",7

We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Hi - just to let you know, the spreadsheet had the same error this year, as does this page:

Thanks Gabriel, we can confirm that there is a discrepancy on Sunday, 28 April 2024 / 20 Nisan 5784 between what Hebcal.com publishes and what Rabbi Miles Cohen luach publishes. Hebcal is displaying the Pesach Chol HaMoed Day 3 reading (Exodus 34:1-26; Numbers 28:19-25) and Rabbi Cohen's luach displays the Chol HaMoed day 4 reading (Numbers 9:1-14, 28:19-25).

We are investigating further and we will get back to you.

Fixed

We have corrected the algorithm on the Hebcal website so it now displays the correct reading for Sunday, 28 April 2024 (and for future years where Pesach falls on the same days of the week, such as 2028 / 5788).
