VAYAK’HEL-PEKUDEI (He gathered/Countings — וַיַּקְהֵל־פְקוּדֵי)

March 18

parasha reading

VAYAK’HEL-PEKUDEI (He gathered/Countings — וַיַּקְהֵל־פְקוּדֵי)

Torah Portion:  Exodus 35:1-40:38
Haftarah:  Ezekiel 45:16-46:18
Brit Chadashah: John 13:1-19; Luke 16:1-13

“I will delight in your statutes; will not forget your word.”  (Psalm 119:16)

The twenty-second reading from the Torah and the second-to-last reading from the book of Exodus is called Vayakhel, which means “and he assembled.” The name comes from the first words of the first verse of the reading, which could be literally translated to read, “And Moses assembled all the congregation of the sons of Israel …” (Exodus 35:1). This portion from the Torah describes how the assembly of Israel worked together to build the Tabernacle. In most years, synagogues read Vayakhel together with the following portion, Pekudei.

Join us as we continue reading from the portion of the Torah (first five books of the Bible) and Haftarah (prophets) that will be read in synagogues throughout the world this shabbat, as well as a portion from the Brit Chadashah (New Testament).
