Halocho #531 - Two for the price of one

The last time the Torah Reading consisted of a double-Parsha was the week before Rosh Hashana; Shabbat Nitzavim-Vayelech.

This week we once again have a double Parsha: Vayakel-Pekudei.

This year all the "candidates" are doubled except for Chukat-Balak. (In Israel, Chukat-Balak are never joined.)

Whenever there's a double Parsha, they are joined during the 4th Aliya.

When there is a double Parsha, we usually read the Haftara of the second Parsha. This week is an exception, since it's also Shabbat Hachodesh.
