This week features:
Israel’s Frankenstorm: Never Say ‘Too Much’ of a Good Thing
Egypt, Europe, America: Cycles of Jewish History
It’s the last week of the month of Tevet, and with the new month of Shevat – whose theme is renewal and life – just around the corner, here in Israel we are experiencing the “perfect storm” of life-giving water. Water is life, Divine blessing, livelihood, Torah. This week’s edition of Temple Talk finds our hosts waxing eloquent on the rain in the Land of Israel and what it means for each and every one of us. The redemption from Egypt should mean something to each and every one of else as well, as the big show gets under way in this week’s Parashat Va’era… and the cycle of Jewish history in the land of Egypt begins to wind down. Is it beginning to wind down in Europe, and even in the USA, as well? Tune into this week’s dynamic Temple Talk as Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman connect the dots between the parasha, the weather, Kerry and Hagel, the struggle for Eretz Yisrael, and most importantly… the only reality, Hashem, the G-d of Israel.
