DEVASH WEEKLY
PARASHAH MAGAZINE

Devash (honey) is a weekly parashah magazine, produced by the Hadar Institute, that makes learning Torah sweet like honey. By engaging directly with texts, Devash helps children and adults discover new ideas, values, and sweet morsels in the weekly Torah portion. We hope that Devash helps enrich your family's Torah learning, both on Shabbat and throughout the week!
