The term parsha (plural parashot) usually refers to the Torah reading for the week (parashat ha-shavua). The same reading is read by Jews all over the world that week. Most parashot are named after the first significant words in the reading. A parsha is also called a weekly portion.
Alternative English spellings: parshah, parahah, parashah
For a listing of which parsha to read, see Torah Readings on hebcal.com: Jewish Calendar Tools.
