Reform Blessings Before & After the Reading of the Haftarah (Text & Audio)

This post presents an audio recording and the Hebrew, English and transliterated texts of the blessings recited before and after the reading of the haftarah in Reform congregations. The haftarah is a selection from the book of Prophets publicly read in synagogue following the Torah reading on Shabbat, Jewish festivals and fast days. In many communities the entire haftarah is read by the Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebrant, or at least the blessings before and after the reading. These resources are from the Reform B’nai Torah Congregation in Sudbury, MA.
