Vayetze, Vayeitzei, or Vayetzei (וַיֵּצֵא—Hebrew for ‘and he left’, the first word in the parashah) is the seventh weekly Torah portion (פָּרָשָׁה, parashah) in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading. It constitutes Genesis 28:10–32:3. The parashah tells of Jacob’s travels to, life in, and return from Harran. The parashah recounts Jacob’s dream of a ladder to heaven, Jacob’s meeting of Rachel at the well, Jacob’s time working for Laban and living with Rachel and Leah, the birth of Jacob’s children, and the departure of Jacob’s family from Laban.
The parashah is made up of 7,512 Hebrew letters, 2,021 Hebrew words, 148 verses, and 235 lines in a Torah Scroll (סֵפֶר תּוֹרָה, Sefer Torah).
