Reading the Bible Very Slowly : Mishpatim, מִּשְׁפָּטִים (Laws), Exodus 21:1-24:18

+ Attending

Mishpatim (מִּשְׁפָּטִים — Hebrew for “laws,” the second word of the parshah) is the eighteenth weekly Torah portion (parshah) in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading and the sixth in the book of Exodus. It constitutes Exodus 21:1–24:18. Jews read it the eighteenth Sabbath after Simchat Torah, generally in February.

As the parshah sets out some of the laws of Passover, Jews also read part of the parshah, Exodus 22:24–23:19, as the initial Torah reading for the second intermediate day (Chol HaMoed) of Passover.

Jews also read the first part of parshah Ki Tisa, Exodus 30:11–16, regarding the half-shekel head tax, as the maftir Torah reading on the special Sabbath Shabbat Shekalim, which often falls on the same Sabbath as parshah Mishpatim (as it does in 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2018).
