Yesterday we had the word for to assemble - לְהַרְכִּיב (le-hahr-KEEV).
What about to disassemble, or to take something apart? That's לְפָרֵק (le-fah-REK). For example, אֲנַחְנוּ פֵּרַקְנוּ אֶת הָאָרוֹן (ah-NAHKH-noo peh-RAHK-noo et hah-ah-ROHN) - We took apart the closet (closets in Israel are usually not walk-in, but rather like this one.
לפרק comes from the root, פ.ר.ק (p.r.k), the same root as פֶּרֶק (PEH-rek) - the chapter of a book or the episode of a television series. The פ.ר (p.r) part of the three-letter root is a common sub-root. Roots with פ.ר. or פ.ל (p.l) have to do with splitting or dividing.
