Vayechi (“He Lived”) is the final Torah portion in the Book of Genesis. It opens as Jacob prepares for his death, making his son Joseph swear to bury him in the Cave of Machpelah. Jacob blesses Joseph’s two sons and his own 12 sons and then dies. Jacob’s sons bury him. The portion ends with Joseph’s death.
In the Haftorah, David exhorts his son Solomon to prove his manliness by keeping the Torah faithfully.
In the Apostolic portion, Messiah washes the Disciples’ feet and orders them to love one another.
The twelfth portion of the book of Beresheet/Genesis is Vayechi, which means “He Lived.” This is the 12th Torah Portion.
