Product Description

Maran HaGaon Harav David Feinstein shlit"a is renowned as one of the world's premier authorities in Torah Law. Less well-known is that he has an encyclopedic knowledge of Tanach, and his weekly shiurim on the Parashah attract a wide variety of people anxious to hear his scintillating, original explanations.

Over the years, Harav Feinstein has explained how the weekly and festival Hafatarahs are related to the Torah readings they accompany. As he writes in his preface, he went on from this endeavor to write a commentary on the Haftarahs themselves. In this brilliant work, the Rosh Yeshivah presents the fruit of his thought and writing.

There was a tragic period in our ancient history when the notorious King Antiochus, of Chanukah infamy, forbade the Torah reading on Shabbos and Yom Tov. In response, the Sages of Israel chose selections from Nevi'im to be read during the tefillos. When the Torah readings were restored to their proper place, the Sages retained the selections from Nevi'im as the Haftarah, to follow of Kerias HaTorah. Over the course of the year, there are over 70 Haftarahs, which means that knowledge of the Haftarahs will provide an understanding of a significant portion of the Books of the Prophets.

In this masterpiece, the Rosh Yeshivah introduces each Haftarah, explains its historical context where necessary, shows its relationship to the Parashah, and offers an enlightening commentary in his own unique, original manner. The reader marvels at the clarity and the depth of the insights. At the same time, the content is easily accessible to everyone, regardless of background. This volume will be welcomed wherever there is a thirst for knowledge. It adds an important new dimension to the Shabbos and Yom Tov Torah readings. And it is an unusual opportunity to be welcomed into the mind of one of the great men of our time and "join him" as he explores the teachings of the Nevi'im in the light of Chazal.

Includes the complete Hebrew text of all the Haftaros with an English translation.
