From the Levitical responsibilities in the Tabernacle, to the ‘wayward’ woman and the Nazir, to the priestly blessing first uttered by Aharon, to the identical gifts to G-d brought to the altar by the heads of all twelve tribes, parashat Naso is all about G-d’s embracing His people and all the challenges that face them day after day.

Naso (Numbers 4:21 – 7:89)

Parashat Naso is read on Shabbat:

Sivan 5, 5776/June 11, 2016 (Israel)

Sivan 12, 5776/June 18, 2016 (Diaspora)

The Book of Numbers, the Orlando Massacre and Post-Shavuot Thoughts: What Does it Really Mean to Receive the Torah?

Behaalotcha

After seven weeks of anticipation, this week all of Israel celebrated the Festival of Shavuot, time of receiving the Torah anew. The Shavuot experience is exhilarating and inspiring. But how do we know that we have truly received the Torah and re-committed ourselves to the Sinai Covenant, on a deep, soul level? This week’s edition of Temple Talk finds Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman exploring this question as they reflect on the themes of the Book of Numbers, the scourge of Islamic terror, and the huge strides being made in our generation towards the rebuilding of the Holy Temple.

The Festival of Shavuot, the Giving of the Torah and the Holy Temple: A Celebration of the Land of Israel

Bechukotai

Chodesh Tov! Happy new month of Sivan!

Like all of Israel, our hosts Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman are busy getting ready for Shavuot, and they share some profound thoughts and insights into the nature of the festival – and some dramatic truths about the Torah itself, the Holy Temple, and the Land of Israel. If you are looking to prepare spiritually for this important Festival, and if you are looking for inspiration in your Torah study and observance… this week’s amazing edition of Temple Talk is a must listen!

Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak

Duties of the Heart: Humility

The story is told of a king before whom a man was sentenced, and a whip was brought for punishment. The king said to the man, “As HaShem lives, were it not it not for my great anger with you, I would have taken strict revenge against anger with you, I would have taken strict revenge against you.” And then he pardoned him. [That is, precisely because the King grew angry did he decide not to discipline the man; for he did not think it proper to satisfy anger.] It is related further of him that he used to say, “I know of no offense heavy enough to outweigh my meekness.”

President Rivlin and Parashat Bamidbar


Hard-Hitting Straight Talk About Israel’s National ‘Symbols,’ and Israel’s National Purpose

Bechukotai

This week in the Land of Israel, we begin to read the book of Numbers, which opens with the awesome iconography of Israel’s encampment in the desert around the tabernacle, each family, each tribe with its flag. In the light of the lessons of this week’s Torah portion and the upcoming celebration of Jerusalem Day – marking 49 years to the liberation of the holy city, this week’s hard-hitting edition of Temple Talk finds Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman asking a tough question – and demanding an answer: Is Israel To Be a Country For All its Citizens, or the Divinely-Appointed Land of Jewish Purpose and Destiny?

The book of Leviticus concludes with a stark but promising choice: Either regard life as void of meaning, empty of purpose, vacant, meaningless and futile and discover that life regards you likewise, and suffer the torturous consequences, or “follow My [G-d's] statutes and observe My commandments and perform them,” and see the purpose and holiness in life, and G-d will bless you with all good things.

Bechukotai (Leviticus 26:3 – 27:34)

Iyar 20 5776/May 28, 2016 (Israel)

Iyar and the Sanctification of Earthiness


The Blessings and Admonition of Parashat Bechukotai: The Reality Test of our Lives

Bechukotai

This week has hosted three important dates in this special month of Iyar: The Biblically-mandated Second Passover (Iyar 14), the day upon which the Manna began to fall in the desert (15 Iyar), and Lag B’Omer, the 33rd day of the Counting of the Omer, anniversary of the passing of the famed sage Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai (18 Iyar). This week’s fascinating edition of Temple Talk finds our hosts connecting the dots between these unusual days, and expounding further upon the unique qualities of the month of Iyar. Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Chaim Richman delve deeply into the Torah’s message of sanctifying the physicality of our world and finding Hashem’s presence in everything.
