On Parashiyot Shemot and Bo each year, Iraqi Jews read a Haftara that is different from the custom of most of the rest of the Jewish community.  These Haftarot are known so little that they are not even mentioned in most Humashim.  Our custom of passing them out on special sheets has been a tradition of Babylonian Jewry for more than 100 years.
