This week features:
The Corner of the Field: Uninterrupted G-d Consciousness
A Torah Study on the Mitzvot of the Field: Crop Circles in the Land of Israel
In one more week, Jewish communities in the Diaspora will realign themselves with their counterparts in the Land of Israel, and all will once again be reading the same Torah portion. In the meantime, this week’s Temple Talk finds Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman discovering a precious Torah insight in the portion of Emor, regarding the unique agricultural commandments of the gifts to the poor that are left in the field. Also, in this week’s Torah portion of Behar (read in the Land of Israel), the penultimate Torah portion of the book of Leviticus, we are introduced to G-d’s love affair with the Land of Israel through the commandments of the Sabbatical and Jubilee year cycles. Why does this concept suddenly appear in sefer Vayikra, and what’s it got to do with Mount Sinai? Tune into this week’s Temple Talk for some fascinating answers!
