Candlelighting, Readings:
Shabbat candles: 7:36 p.m.
Torah: Deuteronomy 21:10-25:19
Haftarah: Isaiah 54:1-10
Havdalah: 8:36 p.m.

The weekly haftarah is usually related to the Torah portion that it follows, but this week’s haftarah, from Isaiah 54, seems different. It is the fifth of seven readings that began after Tisha b’Av, as part of a rising crescendo of faith in a better time to come — not a bad lesson these days of troubled headlines.
