Numbers 29:7-11; Maftir

Maftir is the last Torah reading.  On holidays and special shabbatot, the maftir is a reading from an additional scroll.  The maftir for festivals relates the sacrifice brought on that occasion.  Similarly, the Yom Kippur maftir notes the offering brought on the day that is Yom Kippur on the calendar.
