This Week’s Haftarah

haftarah bereshit, Isaiah, Isaiah 42, Isaiah 43 10,
“The blind I will lead on a road they don’t know, on roads they don’t know I will lead them; I will turn darkness to light before them, and straighten their twisted paths.  These are things I will do without fail.”
Some history of ancient temple liturgy precedes our presentation of Haftarah Bereshit in which Isaiah describes the powerful promise to save and restore YHWH’s exiled covenant people.
