Introduction to Yirmiya

Compared to Sefer Yeshaya, Yirmiya is considerably more grim and tragic. The Talmud Yerushalmi notes that of all the books of prophecy, Yirmiya is the only one which does not conclude on a positive note. Who was Yirmiya and what is the sefer of his nevuos about? Yirmiya the Prophet Yirmiya was the son of […]

Perek 58 (the Haftara we read on Yom Kippur morning) includes Yeshaya`s reminder to the people to ensure that their fasting and teshuva moves beyond external actions, and is actualized by caring for the poor. The Alshich comments on the double command of the Navi, who encourages the people to “Give bread to the poor, […]

Perek 55 draws on a comparison between water and Torah. Let us expand and explain this connection. The Midrash in Shir Hashirim compares Torah to water, saying that “Just as water only has a sweet taste if one is thirsty, so too Torah only has a sweet taste if one has a thirst for it.” There […]

  The haftara of Noach  is taken from Yeshaya perek 53, and it refers to the great flood as ‘The waters of Noach’ ( mei no’ach – Yeshaya 53:9). Why is the flood attributed to Noach here? The Zohar answers that Noach was at fault for not praying to G-d on behalf of his generation: perhaps the flood would have been averted had […]

At the risk of stepping on many a philosopher’s toes, we shall address a classic question: Why did Hashem create the world? This question is difficult for a philosopher who has no handed-down tradition with which to base an answer on and instead has to rely on the subjective, and time and socially-sensitive human mind. […]

Perek מ Pesukim ל – לא “ויעפו נערים ויגעו ובחורים כשול יכשלו: וקוי ה’ יחליפו כח יעלו אבר כנשרים ירוצו ולא ייגעו ילכו ולא ייעפו”: “Youths may weary and tire and young men may constantly falter. However, those whose hope is in Hashem will regenerate strength, they will grow a wing like an eagle; they will run and […]

Many of the commentators (from R’ Sadia Gaon to Abarbanel) laid down Ikarim or ‘Principles of Faith’, ideas so central to Judaism that without them Judaism would be rendered meaningless. The most famous Ikarim was the Rambam’s 13 principles of faith, but it was not by any means the only one. Although we don’t find […]

“וְהָיָה בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, יִתָּקַע בְּשׁוֹפָר גָּדוֹל, וּבָאוּ הָאֹבְדִים בְּאֶרֶץ אַשּׁוּר, וְהַנִּדָּחִים בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם; וְהִשְׁתַּחֲווּ לַיהוָה בְּהַר הַקֹּדֶשׁ, בִּירוּשָׁלִָם” “And it shall be on that day, the great Shofar will be blown, and those lost in the Land of Ashur will come, and those pushed off in the land of Egypt (will come), and they will […]

The passuk following the completion of the creation of the world (2:4) reads ‘These are the products of the heavens and the earth in their having been created (be’hibar’am), on the day that Hashem the L-rd made earth and heavens.’ Rashi comments that the small Heh allows one to read the word “be’hibar’am” as “be’heh bra’am”, meaning that […]
Yeshaya Perek 18

The Radak writes (18:3) on the use of the shofar to announce the redemption that ‘When one wants to gather a nation together… one sounds the shofar and the people will hear from far away’. Although this appears simplistic, the Maharal (Rosh Hashana 11b) elucidates the role of the shofar using a passuk later on […]
