HH: Thanks for the article. One question that came to me as I read
was how much of the Tanakh is not included in the haftarah readings.
It seems I noticed once that there was quite a lot of Scripture that
was not included in the regular annual reading cycle. Now that may
not include all the readings that Mr. Mack mentions, including the
three-year reading cycle, the holidays, fast days, and "special
sabbaths", as well as the variant traditions. But the significance of
particular omissions of biblical material varies according to how
much material overall is left out of the haftarahs.
