The Haftorah of Shavuot


We have mentioned that on the first day of Shavuot we read the Ten Commandments from the Torah. The Haftorah portion is also about an incident of Divine revelation, albeit a personal one - Yechezkel's vision of the Divine throne room.

Because the topic of this Haftorah is so lofty, we generally have a scholar or person of great piety read this Haftorah.

(Mishneh Berurah 494:4)

Have a great day,
