Temple Talk is a weekly internet radio webcast with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven of the Temple Institute.
This week features:
An Altar of Earth – The Measure of Man and an Approach to G-d
Eternal Message of Freedom – What it Means and How to Preserve It
We go from the soaring heights of Mount Sinai to the roll-up-your-sleeves nitty-gritty of learning and applying Torah laws and lessons to our everyday lives. Living in the absolute presence of G-d that prevailed at the Sinai revelation is not something that we human beings are capable of sustaining or surviving. But we can and must treat one another in such a way that G-d will desire that His presence will dwell among us. The Torah reading of Mishpatim teaches us how to live peacefully with one another. Only when that lesson has been learned can we turn our collective hearts and efforts to the grandest of plans which lays in store: the building of a Sanctuary for G-d here on earth. Also, a short history of freedom, from Sinai to Avraham “Yair” Stern, whose yartzheit is this coming Sunday, (25 Shvat).
