I switched to XML, because google docs natively supports XML but needs help supporting JSON. I assume you have a reason for only reporting the parsha in JSON, but not XML.
Thanks for reminding me that it is given in JSON!

The two issues I had with that are:
1) It gives all the aliyot readings according to triennial and annual cycle, which is so much more data than I need, even if I restrict it only to the month of interest

2) I would have to calculate if the date is shabbat and if it is then take the right parsha out, and if it isn't then would have to say it is the next shabbat.

Neither of these is prohibitive to what I am trying to do, I was just wondering if there was an easier way of getting the output from a REST API like you would on the webpage of the date converter which includes the parsha.
