Shlach Lecha (שְׁלַח or שְׁלַח-לְךָ — Hebrew for "send", "send to you", or "send for yourself") is the 37th weekly Torah portion (פָּרָשָׁה, parashah = pericope) in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading and the fourth in the Book of Numbers. Its name comes from the first distinctive words in the parashah, in Numbers 13:2. Shelach (שְׁלַח) is the sixth and lecha (לְךָ) is the seventh word in the parashah. The parashah tells the story of the twelve spies sent to assess the promised land, commandments about offerings, the story of the Sabbath violator, and the commandment of the fringes (צִיצִת, tzitzit).
