Sedra Stats

Vayeira Stats

5th of the Torah’s 54 sedras;
5th of 12 in B’reishit
Written on 171 lines in a Torah, rank 37th
4 Parshiyot; 3 open, 1 closed
105 p’sukim - ranks 32nd (11 in B’reishit)
same as D’varim (which is longer)
1402 words - ranks 37th (11th in B’reishit)
5314 letters - ranks 36th (11th in B’reishit)
Shorter than average p’sukim in a sedra with slightly below average number of p’sukim means a smallish sedra

None of the 613 mitzvot are in Chayei Sara, however, as mentioned often, there are Midot and values and other lessons to be learned. (This is one of 17 mitzva- less sedras, 9 of which are in Sefer B’reishit, 3 in Sh’mot, none in Vayikra, 2 in Bamidbar, and 3 in D’varim.)
