The Jewish Calendar and Holidays (incl. Sabbath): Passover: The Torah Readings on Pesach and Sukkos:
What is the reason for the sequence of the Torah readings on
Pesach and Sukkos?
On the second day of Pesach and the first two days of Sukkos,
we read from Emor; on the eighth day of Pesach and on Shemini
Atzeres we read from Re'eh. The first and seventh days of
Pesach have special readings to mark Yetzias Mitzrayim and
Kerias Yam Suf, and similarly Simchas Torah is special. On
Shabbos Chol ha-Moed we read from Ki Sisa; Emor is read before
Ki Sisa because it mentions Sefiras Ha-Omer, which begins on
the second day of Pesach.
