Temple Talk is a weekly internet radio webcast with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven of the Temple Institute.
This week features:
Parashat Pekudei: Bringing it All Back Home
The Tabernacle and the Completion of Creation: Why Wait Any Longer for the World to Begin?
This week we read Parashat Pekudei (literally, “reckonings”) and we shall be ushering in the second month of Adar. It’s also the first of the four special Torah readings, parashat “Shekalim.” Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman connect the dots and examine the Torah portion of Pekudei, only to find to that it contains nothing new… but at the same time, it’s brand new! It’s that ‘ol feeling of deja vu – we’ve read all this before. And we’ve built a house for the Creator before! It’s not rocket science! We did it once, we did it twice – we can do it again.
