Parashah (Weekly Torah Portion)
For Messianic and Christian Believers
It was never clear to me why some call the weekly Torah reading parshah and others call it sidra.
Are these two words synonymous?
The words sidra (plural sedarim) and parshah (plural parshiot) are used interchangeably in the vernacular to refer to the Torah portion that is read on a particular Shabbat. However, according to their original definitions they mean different things.
