Temple Talk is a weekly internet radio webcast with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven of the Temple Institute.
This week features:
I’ve Seen Fire & I’ve Seen Rain
The Month of Tevet & the Holy Temple: On Guard Against a Breach
Yosef and the Great Reconciliation: Seeing Everything as the Mercy of Hashem
What a week of extremes it’s been: The joy of Chanuka against the backdrop of the devastating fire in Israel that claimed so many lives and did such horrendous damage. And finally, a little rain… and as we learn from the story of Choni Ha’Ma’agel, we never say “we’ve had enough rain!” so we continue to pray that the Land of Israel begins to receive bountiful rainfall. As we read of Yosef’s reunion with his family in Egypt, the month of Tevet begins…what are the lessons of this month, which begins during Chanukah but yet, features a fast day over the First Temple’s destruction just a week after the conclusion of Chanukah?
