This Week’s Haftarah

“Now Yiftach, a brave soldier from Gil‘ad, was the son of a prostitute.” Judges 11:1
Who is Yiftach (Jephthah)?  Why was the name of another god on his lips and what are we to make of his shocking vow?  We flesh out his backstory from what the biblical text and ancient culture tell us about his birth, home, upbringing and social life.
