Sedra Stats

Vaychi Stats

12th of 54 sedras;
12 of 12 in B’reishit
Written on 148.33 lines in a Torah (45th)
12 parshiot, 7 open and 5 closed
In addition, the first part of the sedra is the end of the previous parsha from Vayigash. Vaychi is the only sedra that does not begin at a parsha break.
85 p’sukim - 44th (12th in B’reishit)
1158 words - 44th (12th in B’reishit)
4448 letters - (12th in B’reishit)

MITZVOT
None of the 613 mitzvot are found in Vaychi - one of 17 sedras w/o mitzvot
###
The Book of B’reishit
12 of the 54 sedras in the Torah.
That’s one or two more than each of the other books (11,10,10,11)
Written on 2521 lines of 10274 in a Sefer Torah - 24% of the Torah.
1533 p’sukim of the 5846 in the Torah. More than 26% of the Torah’s p’sukim
20,612 words of 79,976, almost 26%
78,064 letters of 304,805 (25.6%)
3 of the 613 mitzvot. Less than 1/2 this means, obviously, that B’reishit is meant to teach us more than mitzvot
