This week features:
A Time to Weep, a Time to Build
The State of Israel, the Redemption, and the Holy Temple: Rise
and Shine, Jewish People!
On Tisha B’Av, the day of mourning and national tragedy, Rabbi Richman and Yitzchak Reuven ascended the holy Temple Mount together with hundreds of Jews of all ages and backgrounds, searching for understanding on this spiritually-powerful day. We all know that the prophets of Israel assure us this day of sadness will be transformed into a day of rejoicing. But we wonder: How? When? Today, on top of Mount Moriah, in the very place that the Holy Temple was sacked and destroyed nearly 2,000 years ago, we discovered the answer: It is the Jewish people themselves who will make this prophecy come true. It is the nation of Israel who will decide that they have had their fill of mourning, and are ready to rebuild. Rabbi Richman and Yitzchak recorded this special edition of Temple Talk just after descending from the mountain, and they share their unforgettable experiences and impressions from this historic and unprecedented Tisha B’Av visit to the most sacred site in the world.
