Genesis | ኦሪት ዘፍጥረት | Orit ZeFiTret | בראשית | B’reisheet (Bereshit)
The Book of Genesis (i.e., Sefer Bereshit [סֵפֶר בְּרֵאשִׁית]) is concerned with beginnings: the creation of the universe and the origin of humanity. It quickly moves from universal history (Adam, Noah, Babel) to the history of the Abraham, the first Hebrew. The remainder of the book focuses on the lives of the Hebrew patriarachs, matriarchs and especially the story of Joseph. The book ends with the entire family of Jacob migrating to Egypt to escape famine through the auspices of Joseph.
There are fifty chapters in Genesis, divided into twelve weekly readings:

Exodus | ኦሪት ዘጸአት | Orit ZeTseAt | שמות | Shemot | (Shemot)
The Book of Exodus (i.e., Sefer Shemot [סֵפֶר שְׁמוֹת]) tells the story of how the family of Jacob became a great nation, Israel. The book tells of the “Hebrew Bondage,” and subsequent deliverance with the 10 plagues by the hand of the LORD. Moses leads the people out of Egypt, crossing the Red Sea. They arrive at Sinai, where they receive the Torah. While Moses is on the mountain, the people worship a Golden Calf. The remainder of the book describes the details and construction of the Mishkan (Tabernacle).
There are forty chapters in Exodus, divided into eleven weekly readings:

Leviticus | ኦሪት ዘሌዋውያን | Orit ZeLaeWaWiYan | ויקרא | Vayikra | (Vaiyikra)
The Book of Leviticus (i.e., Sefer Vayikra [סֵפֶר וַיִּקְרָא]) is the book of the priesthood of ancient Israel, concerning ritual and sacrificial laws pertaining to the Mishkan (tabernacle, and later the Temple). The book describes the details of offering various sacrifices to the LORD, and especially emphasizes ritual purity and holiness. In fact, nearly half of the 613 commandments of the Torah are found in this book (and much of the Talmud is based on it).
There are twenty-seven chapters in Leviticus, divided into ten weekly readings:

Numbers | ኦሪት ዘኍልቍ | Orit ZeHwilQwi | במדבר | Bamidbar | (Bamidbar)
The Book of Numbers (i.e., Sefer Bemidbar [סֵפֶר בְּמִדְבַּר]) details how the tribes of Israel were counted and meticulously arranged into military camp formation around the Mishkan (tabernacle). Led by the Shechinah cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night, at first they were en route to the Promised Land – the land of Canaan – which the LORD swore to give to Abraham and his descendants forever. However, the people rebelled and were condemned to wander for 40 years in the desert.
There are thirty-six chapters in Numbers, divided into ten weekly readings:

Deuteronomy | ኦሪት ዘዳግም | Orit ZeDaGim | דברים | Devarim | (Devarim)
In the final book of Torah, Sefer ha’Devarim (סֵפֶר הַדְּבָרִים), Moses reviews the history and the laws given to the Israelite people (the Greek name Deuteronomy comes from the phrase Mishneh haTorah (Deut. 17:18), which means “the second telling of the law”). Obeying God’s laws will bring blessing, while spurning them will bring disaster. Idolatry is repeatedly denounced.
There are thirty-four chapters in Deuteronomy, divided into eleven weekly readings.

* Portions marked with an asterisk may be added to the following week’s readings.

There are 54 Torah portions, one for each week of a leap year, so that in the course of a year, beginning and ending on the Simchat Torah, we read the entire Torah in our services. During non-leap years, there are 50 weeks, so some of the shorter portions are doubled up (a leap-year adds an additional month (4 weeks) to the usual 12 (called Adar II); a Jewish calendar will indicate if a year is a leap year).

During the weeks of Passover and Sukkot, different Torah portions are read, so on leap years that leaves 52 weeks for the 54 readings (2 weeks have double portions), and on non leap years, 48 weeks for the 54 (6 weeks have double portions).
