Tazria-Metzora, Melachim Bet 7:3-20

Shalom, chaverim! :) Happy Yom Ha’atzma’ut. Pesach had some really beautiful haftarot, and I started writing blog posts for each of them, but travel and other obligations made it too difficult to pull them together into anything worth sharing. 1,356 more words

Haftarah

Tzav, Shabbat HaGadol, Malachi 3:4-24

Vayakhel-Pekudei, Parah, Yechezkel 36:16-38

Haftarah

Ki Tisa, Melachim Alef 18:1-39

Okay I’m going to try to get in last week’s haftarah. Sephardim have a shorter version of this haftarah: only verses 20-39. Ashkenazim read most of the perek: from verse 1 to verse 39. 1,056 more words

Haftarah

This week’s parasha is Terumah, Exodus 25.1 – 27.19[i] which begins, Tell Bnei-Yisrael to take up an offering for Me. From anyone whose heart compels him you are to take My offering… 948 more words
