HaftArah Discussions

Each class is devoted to the study of a specific Haftarah.  Please consult the Calendar to see when a Haftarah class is scheduled, which Haftarah will be studied as well a contact.  Typically an eblast will be sent alerting members that there will be a class and provide some information about Haftarah as well as date, time and a contact name/email address for any questions.  All classes run from 4:00 PM to approximately 5:30 PM. The class strives to be completely inclusive and everyone is welcome regardless of background or level of knowledge.

Themes considered include the historical background and character of the Prophet who authored the Haftarah; the historical context of the Haftarah; the structure and theme of the Haftarah; how the Haftarah relates to the holiday or Torah portion with which that Haftarah is associated; and what other portions of the Tanakh, Jewish classics, or outside literary sources might illuminate the Haftarah.
