Tetzaveh, Tetsaveh, T’tzaveh, or T’tzavveh (תְּצַוֶּה—Hebrew for "[you] shall command," the second word and first distinctive word in the parashah) is the 20th weekly Torah portion (פָּרָשָׁה, parashah) in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading and the eighth in the Book of Exodus. The parashah reports God’s commands to bring olive oil for the lamp (מְנוֹרָה, Menorah), make sacred garments for the priests, conduct an ordination ceremony, and make an incense altar.
It constitutes Exodus 27:20–30:10. The parashah is made up of 5,430 Hebrew letters, 1,412 Hebrew words, 101 verses, and 179 lines in a Torah Scroll (סֵפֶר תּוֹרָה, Sefer Torah).
