Parashat Vayetzei

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

Vayetzei (“He Went Out”) opens as Jacob dreams about angels going up and down a ladder, and then continues on his journey toward the home of his uncle Laban. During years of indentured servitude, Jacob marries Laban’s daughters Leah and Rachel, bearing children with them and with their maidservants, Bilhah and Zilpah. [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.
