Haftarah in a Nutshell


What is the Haftarah (sometimes pronounced Haftorah)? Is it merely a time to glaze over or escape shul for a tot of whiskey? In fact, it is an ancient custom whose origins are lost in the mists of time, whether in response to persecution, as a polemic or a vital part of an ancient educational methodology. Why were these particular portions chosen? How did this come to be associated with bar-mitzvah celebrations? Why do we still read these and what meaning can we glean from these often obscure and difficult texts?


Join the Academy in unpacking this often-overlooked part of the shul service, and discover some of the most beautiful texts in the world, their prophetic authors, the patterns that they created – and a very different 2,000-year-old blend.
