Light to the Nations – with Rabbi Chaim Richman of The Temple Institute.
Weekly series with new teachings available every Thursday.
The month of Iyar is a particularly propitious time for increasing Torah knowledge. Being the month in which the manna began to fall in the desert, it is likewise a propitious time for realizing that G-d is also the source of our physical sustenance. The counting of the Omer, which occupies all the days of the month of Iyar, is itself intrinsically connected to the bounty of the manna, and the measure of spiritual and physical sustenance with which we will be blessed throughout the coming year.
