Summary of The Haftorah:
Haftorah Ki Savo
This week's Haftorah of Consolation refocuses us on the messianic vision of a
nation and world united behind a single goal and purpose.
"Lift up your eyes round about... they are all gathered together... (60:4)
Your gates will be continually open... so that men may bring to you the wealth
of nations, with their kings led in procession. (60:11) Violence will no
longer be heard in your land... but you will call your walls Salvation and
your gates Praise". (60:18)
As in the times of Yishayuhu, we too are in need of consolation. "Your
people will all be righteous; they will possess the land forever... (60:21)
May we soon be comforted!
