Parshat Vayishlach (He Sent)

The Torah portion is Vayishlach, Genesis 32:4-36:43. In synagogues using the Triennial system, 5784 is year 2 and the Torah reading is Genesis 34:1-35:15.

Jacob's reunion with brother Esau, his struggle with an angel, the rape of his daughter Dinah, her brothers' revenge, Jacob's being renamed to Israel (though the two names are used interchangably going forward), the death of Rachel and birth of Benjamin.

The haftarah is Hosea 11:7-12:12. It speaks toward the end of Jacob struggling with an angel, which happened in the Torah portion.

In synagogues using the Sephardic tradition, the Haftarah is Obadiah 1:1-1:21.
