SIDRAH

SIDRAH
SIDRAH (Heb. סִדְרָה; "order," "arrangement"), popular term for the sections of the Pentateuch, read publicly in the synagogue on the Sabbath (see torah , Reading of). The term is found in talmudic literature to mean both "weekly portions" (Shab. 116b; Yoma 87a; TJ, Ta'an. 1:6, 64c), and schools in which sections of the Scriptures are read and interpreted (TJ, Ber. 3:1, 6b; TJ, Beẓah 1:6, 60c). In its Aramaic form (סִדְרָא, sidra) it can also refer to each of the six sections into which the Mishnah is divided.
