Matot Masei: Even the Haftarah Brings an Important Message

Posted by Howard Markose on July 9, 2018
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem: Weekly Parsha Podcast, Matot, Massei


The prophetic selections of Haftarot during the summer months are not chosen to connect with the weekly Torah portion. Their messages of chastisement and consolation revolve around the historical and religious commemorations that take place  this time of year. This week’s choice is no exception.
