Summary of The Haftorah:
The Navi forewarned of the
eventual destruction of the nation, which began, with the exile of the ten
tribes of Israel. The entire nation was in the grips of a spiritual and moral
decline, and the exile seemed inevitable. The nation of Israel was immersed in
physical pursuit and excess which the Navi described as arrogance and
drunkenness. The nation of Yehudah wasn't much better. They lost sight of the
holistic intent of the Torah. Instead, they related to the Torah as a series
of individual commandments and demands that were overwhelming and burdensome.
The beauty and meaning of a G-dly life style was lost. Nevertheless, the Navi
reassured us that in the end, our essence, the "root" of Yakov, would survive
and flourish, as it had throughout history.
