Torah PortionThe biblical citation for the full (annual) portion and a link to the JPS English translation from the JTS website
Year 1, 2, 3 TextsThese are links to files, in pdf format, for the parasha divided into the triennial. Each file is a "tikkun-like" format, with one column representing the parasha in Hebrew with tropes and vowels, and the other column without tropes or vowels. The text is also divided into the 7 aliyot plus maftir for the triennial cycle.
Chart of AliyotThe chart of aliyot contains the parasha divided in 4 ways: as a Full Kriyah, Triennial Year 1, Triennial Year 2, Triennial Year 3. For Each aliyah in the triennial breakdown, there are 2 links - one goes to the site "Navigating the Bible" and the other contains an mp3 sound file. The sound file is a recording of the aliyah by Hazzan Menes.
HaftarahThe haftarah for the parasha is cited, with a link to the JPS English translation, and a link to the sound file (mp3) recorded by Hazzan Menes.
