Etz Hayim logo
 

 

Etz Hayim—"Tree of Life" exists to promote Christian-Jewish relations and dialogue, and a joint biblical, spiritual and liturgical self-consciousness and cooperation.

As Christians, we cannot consider Judaism as a foreign religion; nor do we include the Jews among those called to turn from idols and to serve the true God (cf. 1 Thes 1:9). With them, we believe in the one God who acts in history, and with them we accept his revealed word...

HAFTAROT OF CONSOLATION

Following Tisha B'Av [the 9th day of the month of Av] the haftarah readings turn to “consolation” with a series of seven haftarah portions which connect mourning for the Temple with The Days of Awe. Four of the Haftarah of Consolation occur during the month of Elul and immediately precede The Days of Awe which begin with the first day of the month of Tishrei, Rosh HaShanah.
