Understanding the Haftarot

Understanding Haftarot


(5783) (Tuesday) In this series we will deal with the connections between the weekly parsha and the Haftarot that are read in Shul. By comparing the two texts, we will enrich our understanding of the prophets and the scriptures at the same time as our understanding of the Bible. The unique path of Rosh Yeshiva Harav Yaakov Madan, one of the most famous pioneers in Bible study, begins with his vast knowledge of Tanakh, continues with a deep familiarity with the customs of our country, and ends with an original interpretation that captures the imagination of the text.
