This book presents an examination of the haftorah—prophetical writings in the Bible that are read weekly in synagogue in conjunction with the reading from the Torah. These excerpts and their ties to the weekly Bible portion, however, have been largely unexamined. In this volume, Ervin Landau offers insight into the distinct ways in which the haftorah correlates to the parasha, and how the two texts inform one another to present a broader message.
This book will be valuable to anyone who wants to prepare for the weekly Shabbat reading from the prophets.
Ervin Landau is a businessman, and hosted a weekly haftorah show on Spectrum Radio: London’s Multi-Ethnic Radio Station. He resides in London, UK and this is his first book.
