+ Attending

Shofetim, Shoftim, or Shof'tim (שֹׁפְטִים — Hebrew for "judges," the first word in the parashah) is the 48th weekly Torah portion(פָּרָשָׁה, parashah) in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading and the fifth in the book of Deuteronomy. It constitutes Deuteronomy 16:18–21:9. The parashah is made up of 5,590 Hebrew letters, 1,523 Hebrew words, and 97 verses, and can occupy about 192 lines in a Torah Scroll (סֵפֶר תּוֹרָה, Sefer Torah).[1]

Jews generally read it in August or September.

The parashah provides a constitution — a basic societal structure — for the Israelites. The parashah sets out rules for magistrates,kingsLevitesprophetscities of refugewitnesseswar, and an unaccounted corpse.
