What Is a Parashah?

A "parashah" is the weekly Torah portion that is read publicly in the synagogue so that all the Torah is covered during the course of the year. This past Sunday our church adult education class studied the opening chapters of Exodus. We are also in sync with the weekly Sabbath reading for next Sabbath when the reading is Shemot (the names), Exodus 1:1 - 6:1. In case you're interested, here are the weekly schedule and summary of each parashah. Specifically, here is the summary for Shemot.
