Reviews - What do our customers think?
Helpful and Thought provoking  Jul 6, 2007
A great book and companion to the Torah Commentary. A joy to use!

Shalom, John Allen
A great complement to the Torah  Nov 4, 2006
It provides many insights that are useful in Torah study.
The perfect commentary  Sep 3, 2006
When I was doing research for my Bar Mitzvah, I had to write an introduction to my Haftarah. After looking through all the commentaries at my Temple, I finally decided that this was by far the best one. Everything about it makes it an excellent resource.

Plaut, himself a Rabbi, gives fantastic insight into every single aspect of the Haftarah. His commentary on the Torah was amazing, and so is this one. This is a perfect commentary for Jews and Gentiles alike.
At Long Last! An Organized Commentary !  Jan 22, 2001
Plauts's Haftarah Commentary is a MOST welcome addition to my library of materials for B'nei Mitzvah preparation. The page layout for text and translation is pleasing to the eye and the gleanings and essay sections help to illuminate main ideas to be discussed. In addition, there is a concise and well written bio for each prophet and description of the times they lived in as well as the Torah link. I cannot begin to tell you how much time this volume has saved me when organizing for each student. It is truly the answer to my wish. I highly recommend it to all and especially to those who work with seventh grade Bar and Bat Mitzvah students.
Compliment to Plaut's Torah; stands alone well too!  Apr 26, 1999
Like Plaut's Torah, this is a reverent, liberal reading of the Haftarah and filled with inciteful and inspirational notes. Probably because there has been less focus on the Haftarah relative to the Torah, there are fewer notes. However, I still think this is a "must" for a Reform Jewish Library and worthwhile for any modern or post-modern person of faith.
