Start the Torah cycle the Harry Potter way

If you haven't bought Harry Potter and Torah, now's the time! We've just started the new cycle of Torah portions back at Bereisheet (Genesis), and Harry Potter and Torah has chapters for every Torah portion in Bereisheet, along with many throughout the rest of the Torah. So you can have Harry Potter perspectives for every week's Torah portion!

Parshat Lech Lecha (Oct 20) has a chapter on ghosts, and also relates to the chapter on Magical Protection. Parshat VaYeira (Oct 27) has the chapter with my favorite title: Mudbloods, Moabites, and Moshiach, and also a chapter titled Whomping Willows and Monotheistic Maples. (To see more sample chapters on-line, see the book's home page.)
