Light to the Nations – with Rabbi Chaim Richman
Weekly series with new teachings available every Thursday.
Next week on Light to the Nations:
Music of the Holy Temple, Part V

Music of the MikdashThe music performed by the Levitical choir was an earthly rendition of the ever changing heavenly strains which reflect the spiritual “moods” of heaven which are transformed as the day grows from morning into evening, and the seasons travel from festival to festival. With musicologist Rabbi David Louis.

Dedication: Dedicated to the members of the South Plains Hebraic Center.

Temple Talk
Temple Talk is a weekly internet radio webcast with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven of the Temple Institute.

This week features:

Parshat Tazria, Israel & Earthquakes: The World’s Wake-Up Call

Get Ready for the Second Annual International Temple Mount Awareness Day!

TazriaThis week’s Torah portion, Tazria, like all of the book of Leviticus, presents the challenge of living life on an accelerated plane of consciousness. The much-misunderstood laws of purity, as embodied by the enigmatic, elusive, metaphysical illness of tzarat, are in reality a Divinely-orchestrated barometer of spiritual sensitivity… or the lack of it. Rather than being a punishment, this illness – admittedly a test – was visited upon Israel by G-d as a sign of His love for His people. G-d still broadcasts these finely-tuned messages to us, through world events and the stuff of our everyday experience. It’s just that most people prefer to ignore the frequency. Because the painful truth is that in today’s world, humanity’s spiritual barometer, mankind’s spiritual sensitivity or lack of it, can be measured by the world’s attitudes about Israel.

Next week, Rosh Chodesh Nisan, Tuesday April 5th, the first day of the Hebrew month of Nisan and “the beginning of time,” is the 2nd Annual International Temple Mount Awareness Day. Our regular weekly Temple Talk will not be broadcast next week. Instead, we invite you to join us for THE 2ND ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL TEMPLE MOUNT AWARENESS DAY. Click here to learn all about it!

Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak

Weekly series with new shows available every Tuesday.

Chapter 5
Mishnah 1a
The Messages of Numbers
The Hebrew language is unique, because Hebrew words describe not only an object but its very essence. For example, the Hebrew word for “eye” means both the anatomical eye and the essence of vision. Similarly, the numbers quoted in the mishnayot of this chapter have a deeper meaning which transcends mere quantity.

Dedicated to Jerry and Penny Dean

Program LinkRead the Torah Portion with ShmuelContact

The Torah concepts of tahara and tum’a, imperfectly translated as spiritual purity and impurity, are impossibly difficult for us to entirely grasp through our intellect. And this is because, simply put, these concepts, or the realities that they express, are so much greater than our own individual selves. The period of impurity which visits a mother upon the birth of a child bespeaks of the passage of pure and perfect knowledge from one world to the next, and the necessary loss that results. The extended period of impurity upon the birth of a daughter reflects the more perfect image of G-d that is embodied in the female soul.

Tazria (Leviticus 12:1-13:59)
Parashat Tazria is read on Shabbat:

Red HeiferThis upcoming Shabbat, (March 26), we read the special Torah reading, Parashat Parah, Numbers 19, all about the parah adumah – the red heifer. A necessary part of Passover preparation during the time of the Holy Temple, the reading of the Torah description of the statute of the red heifer continues to be part of our tradition today. In spite of it all, the red heifer remains to this day the most compelling and elusive mystery in the Holy Torah. Yet what the mystery reveals about our own nature and our relationship with G-d is most enlightening.
