Vayakhel, Wayyaqhel, VaYakhel, Va-Yakhel, Vayak’hel, Vayak’heil, or Vayaqhel (וַיַּקְהֵל — Hebrew for "and he assembled,” the first word in the parashah) is the 22nd weekly Torah portion (פָּרָשָׁה, parashah) in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading and the 10th in the book of Exodus. It constitutes Exodus 35:1–38:20. Jews in the Diaspora read it the 22nd Sabbath after Simchat Torah, generally in March.

The lunisolar Hebrew calendar contains up to 55 weeks, the exact number varying between 50 in common years and 54 or 55 in leap years. In leap years (for example, 2014, 2016, and 2019), parashah Vayakhel is read separately. In common years (for example, 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2018), parashah Vayakhel is combined with the next parashah, Pekudei, to help achieve the number of weekly readings needed.

The parashah tells of the making of the Tabernacle and its sacred vessels.

Pekudei, Pekude, Pekudey, P’kude, or P’qude (פְקוּדֵי — Hebrew for "amounts of,” the second word, and the first distinctive word, in the parashah) is the 23rd weekly Torah portion (פָּרָשָׁה, parashah) in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading and the 11th and last in the book of Exodus. It constitutes Exodus 38:21–40:38. Jews in the Diaspora read it the 22nd or 23rd Sabbath after Simchat Torah, generally in March.
