Karaite Torah Reading

We begin the reading of the Torah on first Shabbat after Yom SheminiAseret (actually we read the first part of the Parashah on Yom SheminiAseret [after reading Parashat WeZot HaBerakhah], then read the whole Parashah on the first Shabbat). We do not postpone any Parashah because of any Holiday (as is the custom of the Rabbanites) but read the normal Parashah first, then the Parashah for the Holiday. Therefore we may not always be reading the same Parashah as the Rabbanites on any given Shabbat - it all depends on the week in question. Our Hafatarot are:
