Haftarah V’yeira

Haftarah V’yeira “Hospitality Blessings” 2 Kings 4:1-37 (A); 4:1-23 (S) by Mark Huey As you ponder this week’s Haftarah reading and contemplate why the ancient Sages attached it to V’yeira (Genesis 18:1-22:24), the connective reasons appear to be the two common threads of hospitality and the blessings of offspring.

Haftarah Noach

Haftarah Noach “Walking by Faith” Isaiah 54:1-55:5 (A); 54:1-10 (S) by Mark Huey The cataclysmic Flood described in Noach (Genesis 6:9-11:32) is undoubtedly the most memorable event that most of you will be considering this week.
