This week features:
Rabbi Nachman Kahana on the Land of Israel: A Love Story
Who is Ready to Leave the Exile and Come Home to Israel? Only Those in Love…
It’s parashat Yitro this week, which features the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai, and Tu B’Shevat, the New Year of Trees and holiday of renewal also falls out this week. What a perfect confluence! The challenge of the Torah is for us to be constantly renewed. But old habits and patterns are hard to break. When Hashem delivered the Children of Israel from Egypt, an awful lot of Jews stayed behind – in fact, the vast majority. Why? They thought they had good reasons for not wanting to come to the Land of Israel. Unfortunately, today as well, there are voices raised against the Land of Israel. How should we respond? Join us for a special edition of Temple Talk that you will never forget. Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman host a special guest, the beloved and highly esteemed Torah scholar and author Rabbi Nachman Kahana. Rabbi Kahana opens up a little window into his 50 years of life in Israel; his family, his IDF experiences, his insights into every day life in Israel for five decades. He leaves us breathless, joyously moved, and in wide-eyed wonderment over what it really means to be in love with the Land of Israel.
