Pinchas when Shabbat is the 17th of Tammuz

JoshG 4 years ago updated by Michael J. Radwin 2 years ago 1

When the 17th of Tammuz falls on Shabbat, the fast is delayed until Sunday.  In 2019 Parashat Pinchas is read on such a Shabbat, so the haftarah read is the one for Pinchas and not the one for the first Shabbat in the Three Weeks.  But on the Hebcal website it thinks that Pinchas falls after the 17th of Tammuz this year (see https://www.hebcal.com/sedrot/pinchas) so it indicates the wrong haftarah.
