"This series is an original and unique attempt at familiarizing the English-speaking Jewish public with the meaning of the haftaros
The verses from the prophets are not literally translated
Rather, they were adapted according to the rendition of the classical commentators, so as to be meaningful to the reader
Midrashim and stories serve to hightlight the ideas expressed in the verses
The text is perfectly lucid even for those not familiar with Hebrew.
It is hoped that the reader will gain an appreciation of the beauty and profundity of the Haftaros, and that educators as well
as laymen willbe motivated to delve further into this hitherto neglected subject so that it will become familiar to all.
This series is especially valuable for Bar-Mitzva boys.
With the aid of these volumes, each Bar-Mitzva boy will be able to grasp the meaning of his haftara!"
