To accommodate the calendar, some years we join two parshiot together and this week's reading of Vayakhel-Pekudei is just such an example. When doing so, we still have the seven basic aliyot – call ups to the Torah. However, the fourth aliyah must encompass the end of the first parasha and the beginning of the second parasha. This way each parasha has three aliyot and the one additional aliyah is shared between them. Of course a parasha does not have feelings but we are still instructed to treat each one equally and fairly, to inculcate sensitivity so that we be fair with everyone in our orbit.
