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.

From various sectors of society the Call is perceived that “The End of the World” may be close. World crises are nothing new, and even before this Corona Plague hit this Call was observed but for totally different reasons. For certain, there was not a commentator in the World who even just weeks ago would have predicted that the entire Global economy would come to a sudden abrupt halt, international travel abandoned and families across the Globe ‘locked down’ in their homes!

In this week’s Sedra of Emor, we read Parashat HaMoadot – the section about the holidays. The Torah reviews all the Jewish holidays from Passover to Sukkot in detail. Such a lengthy review can only be found in this week’s Sedra and in the book of Bamidbar (Numbers) in Parashat Pinhas, which speaks of the Musaf offerings.
Commentaries on Acharei Mot-Kedoshim
There has of late been a strange Phenomenon in the World of millions of non-Jews turning to Torah observation and Jewish religious customs. If this is ‘The End Time’ like religious commentators of all faiths and even seculars proclaim, then this Phenomenon may well be the precursor to the Time for Reawakening amongst both Jews and these non-Jewish Torah restorers around the Globe (who are generally anti-Rabbinic) to the Scriptural Proclamation that the Torah is meant for ALL humanity and that Judah is the Divinely Mandated Lawgiver (Mechoqeck) for guidance in Torah until G-d Himself will take over the Universal rule over the Nations thru His Nation which He is now preparing as the Light of His Torah (His Will) unto the World.
This week’s Parashah is yet another confirmation, from yet another intriguing perspective and confirming also that the current World wide Corona Plague may well be the dreadful Tool that will bring both sides on their knees to this Realization.
Does this Parashah hold a hidden Message and Caring Directive from HaShem to all mankind including the Jewish Religion contained in the ‘Personal Distancing’ which the Corona Plague has forced onto all Mankind?
Texts: Leviticus 12:1 – 13:59 & Leviticus 14:1 – 15:33 || II Kings 4:42-5:19; II Kings 7:3-7:20 NOTE: Kol HaTor, in its commentaries on the weekly Parashot, endeavours to search for and accentuate the Torah Messages contained in the Parashot as applicable to the main Theme of Tanach of the Return of the House of Israel, i.e. […]
This week’s Parashah deals with the Shechinah of G-d establishing His Presence in the Tabernacle built by the Nation to serve as the Temple which HaShem wishes to dwell in amongst His People. Rabbi Dr Jonathan Sacks in his Parashat review points out the foundational choice that these Returnees in the 2nd Exodus have to make – a Pointer for especially the House of 10-Israel which, unlike the House of Judah, have lost their Torah identity totally in their Exile. This is mirrored in a fearfully awesome and tragic event right at the Time of the inaugurational service in the Tabernacle…

The following two poems were written by individuals in the inner surroundings that Corona has forced the World into. These Poems reflect the trend of fast changing attitudes across the Globe and also, once again, the insights that we have shared over the last few weeks in these Parshiyot reviews about where things seem to be heading.
Parashat Pekudei: Exodus 38:21- 40:38
Haftarah Pekudei: 1 Kings 7,51-8,21 (1 Kings 7,40-50)
Without both sides of the Family feud humbling themselves into Peaceful Reconciliation, there can be NO ‘Coming of a Mashiach’ or Final Redemption – notwithstanding all the ‘authoritative’ predictions being presented in these critical Times. The Message held by Parshat Pekudei which fell with Parashat Vayakhel last week in a double portion, is so important that we did not want to present you with a double Message last week. So, we decided to review it this week in our Newsletter while the normal Parashat Vayikrah reading for this week process.
