Temple Talk is a weekly internet radio webcast with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven of the Temple Institute.
This week features:
Out of the Sukkah, and into the rain, we welcome Mar Cheshvan, a month of great potential and the month of the third Holy Temple.
The elusive and enigmatic month of Mar Cheshvan arrives this Friday and Shabbat, and coming on the heels of the action-packed month of Tishrei, at first glance appears disappointing … until we begin to understand what can really happen in Mar Cheshvan if only we are ready.
As we reflect upon the Sukkot that was and its theme of water, and as we read this week’s Torah portion of Noah and the flood, we also realize that this month of Cheshvan begins the rainy season in the Land of Israel. It is also the month that the floodwaters began to fall back in the days of Noah. But the Land of Israel brings the blessing of water to the entire world, and will one day serve as the “Noah’s ark” for all humanity … tune into this week’s Temple Talk as Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman talk about creation and renewal, the Holy Temple, and the cycles of time that we are all a part of.
