The History of the Haftarah
(the weekly Reading from the Prophets)
No one knows for certain the origins of reading the Haftarah, but several theories have been put forth.
The most common explanation, accepted by some traditional Jewish authorities is that in 168 B.C.E., when the Jews were under the rule of the Seleucid king Antiochus IV Epiphanes, they were forbidden from reading the Torah and made do with a substitute by reading from the Prophets. When they were
again able to read the Pentateuch, they kept reading the Haftarah as well.
Certainly the Haftarah was read perhaps not obligatorily or in all communities but as far back as circa 70 CE: The Talmud mentions that a Haftarah was read in the presence of of the great sage, Rabbi Eliezer ben Hyrcanus, who lived at that time.
What is certain about the Haftarah is, that it is the clarion call of the Prophets and it is as fascinating and relevant today as it was thousands of years ago.
Come join Rabbi Wein as he explains the Words of the Prophets according to the understanding of the Talmud & Midrash.
