Haftorah Three Weeks: First Week

"Holy is Israel unto Hashem, the first [tithe] from His produce; all who consume them shall be made desolate and evil will befall them: the word of Hashem." (Jeremiah 2:3)

In our haftorah the prophet Jeremiah is told of the impending disaster which looms before the people of Israel. Their many sins have finally caused matters to come to a head, and now the "evil from the North"--the Babylonian army, led by Nebuchadnezzar--will invade the land and will mete out Hashem's punishment upon His people.
