Reading the Haftorah from parchment


The Haftorah is supposed to be read from a parchment scroll containing the entire book of Prophets from which the Haftorah is drawn. If that is not possible (due to the expense of such a scroll), the next-best option is to read from a printed book of the Prophets.

If neither of those is available for some reason, then one may read the Haftorah from a printed Chumash or from a "Book of the Haftarot," but then each person in the synagogue should personally read along, as well.

(Mishneh Berurah 284:1, 284:11)

Have a great day,
