In all modern communities, the standard practice is that on the three Shabbatot before the Ninth of Av and the seven after it the standard haftarah is replaced. Before the Ninth of Av they are replaced with haftarot of rebuke, from Jeremiah and the opening of Isaiah, and after they are replaced with haftarot of consolation from the later parts of Isaiah. Rambam's Mishneh Torah, though, preserves a very different custom, one where each one of those Torah portions has an associated haftarah,...

In so doing, I hope we can find renewed purpose in our fight for justice, rooted in renewed appreciation of...

The book of Barukh is a deuterocanonical work traditionally attributed to Barukh son of Neriyah, the scribe of the prophet Jeremiah. It was preserved in the Seputagint, but not traditionally kept by Jews. But the opening portions of the book show quintessential signs of having been translated from a Hebrew original source, or Vorlage. This is the reconstructed Hebrew Vorlage of Baruch 1:1—3:8 that Prof. Emmanuel Tov (shlita) published in 1975. The Greek text continues for two and a half more...
