Va'etchanan - Haftarah

Haftarah

The parshah is always read on the special Sabbath Shabbat Nachamu, the Sabbath immediately after Tisha B'Av. Shabbat Nachamu (“Sabbath of comfort”) takes its name from the first word of the haftarah for the parshah, Isaiah 40:1–26, which speaks of "comforting" the Jewish people for their suffering — נַחֲמוּ נַחֲמוּ, עַמִּי, nachamu nachamu, ami, "Be comforted, be comforted, My nation...." The haftarah is the first in the cycle of seven haftarot of consolation after Tisha B'Av, leading up to Rosh Hashanah.
