Light to the Nations – with Rabbi Chaim Richman of The Temple Institute.
Weekly series with new teachings available every Thursday.
The Tammuz Special was originally broadcast on Rosh Chodesh Tammuz, 5768, (the beginning of the new month of Tammuz, one year ago – 2008). Rabbi Richman’s insights remain as valuable and relevant today as they were one year ago:
From the days of the spies, the month of Tammuz has been one of harsh judgement for Israel. But Tammuz is not fated to be so for ever. By speaking well of the land of Israel and increasing our appreciation and intensifying our love for the land – right now – in the month of Tammuz, we can begin to turn Tammuz from a bitter month to a sweet month.
Note: Today is the seventeenth day of the month of Tammuz, a day of fasting for the people of Israel, beginning the three week period of reflection and introspection, focussing on the Holy Temple. The Holy Temple was destroyed twice on the ninth of Av, (in the years 586 BCE and 70 CE), The ninth of Av (July 31) is observed by fasting and the recitation of lamentations and concludes the three week period.
