Rosh Chodesh readings are missing

etayluz 1 month ago updated 1 month ago 2

Hi Michael,

It is my understanding that the Rosh Chodesh Tammuz Torah reading will be held on Wednesday 06/29/22 and Thursday 06/30/22.

However, since the Rosh Chodesh readings were removed from the weekday csv's - I don't see any reference to them on this website any longer.

Could you kindly prepare another csv that has all of the Rosh Chodesh readings?

A diaspora, Israel, and triennial version would be great.

below is the link to the Rosh Chodesh reading schemes for reference:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yom_Tov_Torah_readings#Rosh_Chodesh

Rosh Chodesh

When Rosh Chodesh falls on a weekday, Numbers 28:1–15 is read. When Rosh Chodesh falls on Shabbat, Numbers 28:9–15 is read as the Maftir.

The individual readings are as follows:
Rosh Chodesh (weekday)[40]
Reading 1: Numbers 28:1–3
Reading 2: Numbers 28:3–5 (the third verse is re-read)[41]
Reading 3: Numbers 28:6–10
Reading 4: Numbers 28:11–15

Rosh Chodesh (Shabbat)[42]
Readings 1–7: Regular Torah reading
Maftir: Numbers 28:9–15
Haftarah: Isiah 66:1–24

Note: when Rosh Chodesh occurs on a Sunday, the regular Haftarah of the preceding day is replaced with the Machar Hachodesh (literally, "tomorrow is the new month") Haftarah, I Samuel 20:18–42.[43]

I have suggested this before - and I would like to suggest again that all the csv's be consolidated into a single csv for simplicity's sake. Now, if someone only wants to only see Shabbat readings - then you have a filter for Shabbat readings right inside the excel sheet. This makes simple sense to me and it would also lead to a full and comprehensive single document.

hi, thanks for using Hebcal. We implemented Rosh Chodesh Torah readings in our CSV downloads several months ago.

Please see this page

https://www.hebcal.com/sedrot/#download

And note this excerpt:

  • The Full Kriyah CSV files contain Torah & Haftara readings for Shabbat, Rosh Chodesh, holidays and fast days.
  • The Weekday CSV files contain Torah readings for Mondays & Thursdays (and Shabbat mincha) when those days don't co-occur with one of the events above. In other words, these files are intended to be mutually exclusive with the Full Kriyah Shabbat/holiday files.


If you download the fullkriyah-5782.csv file you will see the following starting at line 671:

29-Jun-22 Rosh Chodesh Tamuz 1 Numbers 28:1-28:3 3
29-Jun-22 Rosh Chodesh Tamuz 2 Numbers 28:3-28:5 3
29-Jun-22 Rosh Chodesh Tamuz 3 Numbers 28:6-28:10 5
29-Jun-22 Rosh Chodesh Tamuz 4 Numbers 28:11-28:15 5

30-Jun-22 Rosh Chodesh Tamuz 1 Numbers 28:1-28:3 3
30-Jun-22 Rosh Chodesh Tamuz 2 Numbers 28:3-28:5 3
30-Jun-22 Rosh Chodesh Tamuz 3 Numbers 28:6-28:10 5
30-Jun-22 Rosh Chodesh Tamuz 4 Numbers 28:11-28:15 5

oh I see, thank you!
