This week features:
The Raging Floodwaters of Noach & Bountiful Blessings of Choni
The Bittersweet Month of MarCheshvan: The Double-Edged Sword of Potential
With sweetest blessings for this new month of MarCheshvan! This week’s edition of Temple Talk, recorded and first broadcast on Rosh Chodesh I, the first day of the new month of MarCheshvan, explores the dimensions of this month’s enigmatic themes, the ancient element of water, which is at once both the bringer of Divine blessing, and yet the tool of Divine retribution, as it was in the days of Noach, wherein we learn – in this week’s Torah portion – of the Great Deluge which took place during this very month of MarCheshvan. But yet here in the Land of Israel, where every drop of water is seen as the greatest Heavenly gift, we begin asking for rain during this month. And this month, devoid of any major holidays, holds the key to the future, for both Israel as well as for all humanity. Tune into this week’s fascinating Temple Talk to find out why!
