This week features:
How Many Roads Must a Man Walk Down Before You Call Him a Man?
From Moses to Moses: A Study in the Making of a True Jewish Leader
In the darkness of my night, from the midst of Tevet, the life-giving energy of Shevat is on the way. But the messages of Tevet: true Torah understanding, the value of leadership, and ever-present Temple consciousness, are planted deeply within us. All those themes and more emerge in this energized edition of Temple Talk, focusing on the character and mission of Moses and further exploration of the themes of current Torah portions. How did Moses get to be the man he became? How many roads did he need to walk down?
Thousands of years before the Four Tops sang “Reach Out, I’ll be There” and AT & T came up with the catchy “Reach Out and Touch Someone” advertising campaign, Pharaoh’s daughter Bitya was doing precisely that… she reached way out beyond herself and rescued the infant Moshe from the Nile. Our sages teach that her arm miraculously stretched out for many feet, but the hosts of Temple Talk redefine what this miracle was truly all about… and how it can and should happen to each and every one of us.
