שוש אשיש: The 7th Haftarah of Consolation
- 33 min 23 sec
The seven Shabbatot between Tish'a b'Av and Rosh Hashanah are marked by a universally practiced custom of reading consolation passages from the latter half of the book of Yeshaya. Why were these passages selected and why in the order in which they are read? Who is the prophetic voice behind these messages and what was his goal? We explore these questions in this 7-part series, as we study the text of each of these Haftarot of נחמה.
