This week features:
The Subtlety of Tisha B’Av that Falls on Shabbat
Deuteronomy: The Unique Vision of Moses for His People Israel
It’s paradigm shift time for the nation of Israel as Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven weave together all the loose threads of change currently challenging us all: The stepping up of the three weeks into the nine days of Av, the regal month that roars like a lion protecting its cubs; the gift of self-propelling prophecy that visits us on Shabbat Chazon as we get to draft our own Holy Temple blueprints; the tantalizing ramifications of Tisha B’Av which falls on Shabbat; and the shift in consciousness and purpose which informs the words of Moshe rabbenu as he readies his beloved people Israel to enter into the cherished land of Israel, as we begin the book of Deuteronomy. Plus, more thoughts on the three weeks and the necessary prerequisites for building the Holy Temple: losing our jaded and faded heaviness of spirit and regaining the childlike energy and drive to make a real change in the world.
