Parashat Vayishlach

This week's Torah portion is Parashat Vayishlach (read on ).

Vayishlach (“He Sent”) follows Jacob and his family as Jacob wrestles with a man (commonly understood as an angel), is renamed Israel, and reconciles with his brother, Esau. Jacob’s daughter, Dina, is raped by a Hivite prince, and her brothers sack a city in response. Rachel dies as she gives birth to Jacob's youngest child, Benjamin. [1]

Leyning spreadsheet downloads

The following downloadable files contain the aliyah-by-aliyah breakdown of Torah readings for Shabbat, holidays and weekdays.

Leyning coordinators can download these Comma Separated Value (CSV) files and import into Microsoft Excel or some other spreadsheet program.

  • The Full Kriyah CSV files contain Torah & Haftara readings for Shabbat, Rosh Chodesh, holidays and fast days.
  • The Weekday CSV files contain Torah readings for Mondays & Thursdays (and Shabbat mincha) when those days don't co-occur with one of the events above. In other words, these files are intended to be mutually exclusive with the Full Kriyah Shabbat/holiday files.
  • Triennial CSV files are available for the Diaspora only, as the USCJ/RA has not published aliyah-by-aliyah tables that follow the Israeli sedra scheme.
