IDENTIFYING LEAP YEARS

In the 19 year cycle of readings leap years occur in years 3, 6, 8, 11, 14, 17, 19. To determine if a Jewish year is a leap year or not divide the year by 19. If the remainder is 0,3,6,8,11,14,17 then the year is a leap year and each of the 54 parashot has its own week. In regular years there are some weeks that two are read together. These are so indicated when they occur. The table below shows the leap years coming up.
