First morning in the desert 8

[1]

(Torah is read throughout Pesach, as it is throughout Sukkot and Hanukah — the other 8-day festivals. The readings remain the same from year-to-year, but the order varies slightly depending on when Shabbat falls during the holiday. This year, for example, it falls on the 5th day. There would thus be (4) Torah-readings before it. Following the readings, even if you’re not attending daily services, is a great way to keep the holiday alive in your mind and heart for the entire time.)
