Topics Definition of Modern Hebrew Words


By Jeff A. Benner

The word פרשה (parshah) is an episode or section of a larger work. It is derived from פרש (parash, Strong's #6567), which is a Biblical Hebrew word meaning to make a distinction or to make a separation. The Torah, the first five books of the Bible, are divided into forty-nine פרשות (parshot - sections), the plural form of פרשה (parshah), one for each week of the year (according to the Hebrew calendar), which is read in the synagogues each Shabbat.
