The haftarah for Shabbat Chol HaMoed comes from the book of Ezekiel and portrays an end times struggle with the nation of Gog. Indeed, our writings are replete with all kinds of scenarios for the messianic era with this being only one of them.


The connection to Sukkot is that the name Gog is related to the Hebrew word Gag, meaning roof. The message here is that the ultimate struggle will be between we, the Sukkah people, vs. the Roof people, and it will be about this basic difference in life view. Specifically, the Torah view requires one to recognize the vulnerability of one’s existence, represented by the brittle schach, and hence one must rely on God. The opposite view is total self-reliance represented by the “impervious” gag and hence the eschewing of the Divine.


The struggle is described by the prophet as a battle whereby the Israelites will be successful but that the enemy casualties of the battle will be respected and the messianic era would begin in earnest.
