Parsha Vayetze

Parsha Vayetze ויצא “He went out”

  • Torah portion: B’reisheet 28:10-32:2
  • Haphtarah: Hosea 12:12-14:10
  • Brit Chadasha: John 1:19-51

Did you know: Vayetze is the 7th parsha [portion] of sefer [scroll of/book of] B’reisheet [Genesis]?

Bible: This week we will continue our Torah study by completing this week’s Messianic Weekly Series of parsha studies. The preschoolers will complete Parsha for Preschool for this week’s parsha. You can find these affordable and wonderful resources in our storefront. We will also continue working through our parsha lapbook MessiShul program with the older elementary kids and junior high school students. This fulfills a portion of our Hebrew language study as well. We have a student preparing for a Bat Mitzvah in our homeschool so she will continue learning through her Bar/Bat Mitzvah workbook as well.

Teen Time: Have you checked out Liv’s Teen Devos lately? We will listen to Pastor Joel of Messianic Family Fellowship teach on this week’s parsha via his free Messianic podcasts.

Math: Just in time for reviewing our basic math facts, Restoring the Way has a NEW math drill sheet workbook collection. Noach’s Math will help us review addition facts, subtraction facts, multiplication facts, and division facts. These drill sheets are an invaluable tool for increasing speed and accuracy in math calculations. You can find these Noach’s Math in our storefront.

Reading/Phonics: We will be using MessiKids Reading for the younger elementary students to continue our reading practice and Super MessiKids Preschool Adventure program for the preschool students to continue our studies in reading, phonics, spelling, and handwriting.

Hebrew: To polish up our Hebrew skills, we will continue using the Hebrew readers and handwriting sheets available from Restoring the Way.

Science: The science behind Jacob being able to breed colored, striped, or spotted sheep from white ones is fascinating. This article (a PDF will open from the link) has some interesting and easy to understand DNA information and also a little bit about prenatal nutrition affecting gene expression. At the end of the article there are many works cited that can be searched for online and read for further study.

History: The article here adds some interesting insight into Laban’s teraphim (gods) and how the Code of Hammurabi might have been the “law” that Laban was subject to at the time.

Art: This parsha study would not be complete without using some spotted yarn to create something awesome! So, we are going to utilize “arm knitting” to make a blanket. I know it sounds difficult but it is FAST and EASY (my two favorite qualities in an art project). Here is the tutorial.
