So what does all this mean??  Be patient and have faith.

There is introductory information before each reading indicating which Aliyah, which holiday and if it is a Shabbat reading. Please ignore this information when first day Rosh Hashanah is not on Shabbat or when Yom Kippur is on Shabbat. There files were recorded several years ago when first day Rosh Hashanah was on Shabbat. From the table below, you will see that with four exceptions, the readings are the same; only the Aliyah number is different.
