Finally, some words of comfort for
Jerusalem and its people.
The Shabbat after Tisha B'av is known as Shabbat Nahamu--the Shabbat of comforting. The special name for this Shabbat is derived from the first words of the haftarah, “nahamu, nahamu”--meaning “be comforted, be comforted.” These words open one of Isaiah's most famous prophecies of consolation.
