Weekly Torah Reading Commentaries
Our commentaries search the Bible’s Messages for the Return of the Lost House of 10-Israel and their reconciliation with Judah – i.e. The Geulah or Redemption of Israel.
Parashot and Haftarot
The Annual reading Cycle of the Scriptures
Parashiyot (singular Parashah) – 52 weekly sections of the Torah (first 5 Books of the Bible) read on an annual recurring basis according to an ancient Jewish program. Each Parashah is named after the first Hebrew word of that section, e.g starting the annual program after the festival of Succot from Genesis 1:1: “In the beginning” – Bereisheet – thus named Parashat ‘Bereisheet’.
Haftarot (singular haftarah) – from the root פטר p-t-r ‘to conclude’) is the name given to certain biblical selections (from the Bible Books of Prophecies mainly) which are read after the Parashah of the day at Shabbat and festival services. It stems from an ancient set program compiled by the Jewish Sages to accompany the 52 week Cycle of Parashot. the never ending and constantly repeating Reading and Study Cycle invigorates Bible students with a special chain-like Message of Redemption – leading up to the Final Redemption, the Restoration of Israel and the establishment of the Universal Kingdom of the God of Israel, the Creator.
Amazing Prophetic fulfillment
As we have seen with 9th Av Prophecy, there has been a historic continuing fulfillment of awesome happenings right up to and in this Time that we are living and approaching the Final Redemption. Similarly, it is no less than supernatural how the Biblical Message and Guidance of the weekly Parashot Cycles are fulfilled in current weekly World News Events and the progressive advancement towards Final Redemption of the Nation and Land of Israel and its Message serving as a Light unto the Nations.
Of course, in the end, it is the individual personal involvement and spiritual development that is important to us all. While weekly Rabbinic commentaries on the Parashot are in abundance, eased by the Internet communications these days, there seems to be a neglected area of a lack of weekly commentaries on the accompanying Haftarot and their guidance for us towards Final Redemption. We shall therefore endeavour in our weekly Newsletter to seek and present such Scriptural guidance from the abundant informed Torah sources that are available to us today and correlate it to current News events where possible.

The people of Israel enters the land of Israel by virtue of the Torah of Israel and thereby becomes the nation of Israel, beloved by the G-d of Israel. This is the message, the entire message, of parashat Ki Tavo, from beginning to end, a message for Israel today, and a message for the world. […]
The festive Period of Succot depicts the Great Marriage Celebration of HaShem with His restored Bride – the re-united and restored Israel. This Marriage promises to perfect the Marriage which was initiated at Sinai with His 12-Tribed Kingdom Nation. The first Marriage fell on the rocks, resulting in His Divorce from the 10-Tribed House of Israel and the exile for more than 2000 years of both Houses of Israel. It also caused the departure of the Shechinah (Presence) of HaShem from His People and Land. This week’s Parashah Ki Teitzei (‘When you go forth’) which deals with the Torah law restrictions on Divorce – that devastating breakup of the Sacred Marriage – raises some awesome considerations about the Coming Marriage. This Renewed Marriage has to bridge this Divorce and the way in which HaShem will do it places an awesome yet demanding opportunity before His professing followers.
The past week has heralded the Peace announcements between Israel and its former Arab enemy, Saudi Arabia and more such Peace deals are on the cards already. This is another barrier which is falling to make way for the Final Redemption (Geulah). Together with the exciting signs of the progress in the Return of the Lost House of 10-Israel, it serves as confirmation of the approaching Geulah. Read a Rabbinic commentary on this week’s Haftarah of Softim about the Joy of the dawning Redemption which now should replace the mourning for the unbeatable burdens of the past history of Israel…
Why did this question go viral in a recent Facebook-Posting:
“YOU ARE A Jew? What would you do if you realized that HaShem wants the Jews to accept millions of LOST Ten Tribers back into the Land?”
Most ten tribers wouldn’t expect a teaching like this from Jews. It’s amazing and the words about our relationship to our creator are very heartily and lovingly. Why Would Anyone Want to Worship Idols? God doesn’t like foreign gods…. but does He have to remind us over and over? And the people, too, seemed to […]
While human interpretation of the Future and of Biblical Prophecy is bound to failure, there are indeed glaring indisputable historic and actual trends that confirm Biblical Predictions and which should serve as indicators to the Future. Most importantly, the broad outlines of these trends confirm the existence of the Creator God Who is true to His Word and Promises.
Our Parashat commentary this week emphasizes a great comforting Torah confirmation of the awesome potential that the concluding End Time Final Redemption Event holds not only for His Elect Nation (the major portion of whom are still in exile and even ignorant of their True Identity as remnants of ancient Israel) but for all mankind who choose to consider.
This week, Rabbi David Block asks an interesting question: why do the people of Israel get to go into the land of Israel? Is it because of merit? Or because it was promised to our ancestors? Or, as the text suggests, because of the evil of the other nations? In this video, we analyze these […]

Rabbi Benjamin Blech in an article that we feature here below, finds great encouragement between “The Tragedy of Tisha B’av and the Redemption of Pesach” (15 Nissan). Victory, jubilation and eternal Joy follows the 6000 years of eventful and often tragic human history on this planet. Can this be why a few days after Tishah B’Av, on the 15th of Av, there is a much hidden Day of celebration. Indeed, the 15th of Av cannot but be a mystery. it is the festival of the future Redemption, and thus a day whose essence, by definition, is unknowable to our unredeemed selves. And the Talmud considers this the greatest festival of the year, with Yom Kippur (!) a close second!”
