Shabbat Chazon / שַׁבָּת חֲזוֹן

Shabbat of Prophecy/Shabbat of Vision 🕍

Shabbat Chazon for Hebrew Year 5784 begins at sundown on and ends at nightfall on .

Shabbat Chazon (“Sabbath [of] vision” שבת חזון, also Shabbat Hazon) is named for the “Vision of Isaiah over Judah and Jerusalem” (Book of Isaiah 1:1-27) that is read as the Haftarah on this Shabbat at the end of the three weeks between dire straits, which precede the mournful fast of Tisha B’Av. It is also called black sabbath due to Isaiah’s prophecy of rebuke predicting the destruction of the first temple in the siege of Jerusalem and its status as the saddest shabbat of the year (as opposed to the white sabbath, Shabbat Shuvah, immediately preceding Yom Kippur).
