congregation on Shabbos morning has been to read
a weekly portion from the Torah followed by a reading
from the books of the prophets, the haftarah.
Despite the haftarah's antiquity
and universality, we know little
about its origin or purpose.
- No record appears to have survived informing us of
the names, dates, and locations of the people who
established the haftarah. We also have no record of the
reasons for pairing particular verses from the books of
the prophets with a particular parsha, other than what
can be learned from the prophetic verses themselves.
- This groundbreaking work attempts
to identify the relationship between
each haftarah and its parsha-
and explores how this connection
remains pertinent today.
