This week features:
A Pinchas For Our Generation to Stem the Tide of Desecration
Pinchas, Temple Mourning & the Desecration of G-d’s Name: Get Up & Take a Stand!
Who was the mysterious Pinchas, grandson of Aharon, the “Supercohen” who avenged G-d’s honor and saved the Jewish people? Did he really become Elijah the prophet, a man who lives forever? What does it take to muster the kind of fortitude and courage that it took for Pinchas to take a stand that was radical and unpopular… but true to G-d’s will? In this week’s searing, powerful edition of Temple Talk, Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman examine Pinchas, his deed, and his legacy in the modern Jewish world, where Hashem’s name is still being publicly desecrated. This calls for a Pinchas in our generation – and fortunately, we have one. Tune in to find out who he is.
It was the legendary labor activist Joe Hill whose dying words were “Don’t mourn, organize.” As we continue to navigate through “The Straits,” as this three-week mourning period for the Holy Temple is known, our hosts continue to clarify, elucidate and explore the nature of mourning for the Holy Temple, and determine that old Joe was right: It’s up to us, and to us alone, to stop the cycle of pain. A gripping Temple Talk you will not want to miss!
