This week features:
Purim: A Burst of Light from the World to Come
The Torah Portions of the Tabernacle: Exegesis Ad Nauseum
Purim is here, and we’ve got Purim joy! Or, as much as we could have, without the Holy Temple. Put your masks on… or, take them off! Whatever works for you, as Temple Talk’s Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Chaim Richman discuss the true nature of joy and explore the background of the Purim story of Divine intervention and miraculous intervention and its roots in the ultimate saga – the struggle for the rebuilding of the Holy Temple.
How happy can we be without the Holy Temple, anyway? Evidently, we can get used to anything. Maybe that explains why so many interpretations of the current Torah portions abound, that delve into symbolism and metaphor and ascribe all sorts of meanings to the tabernacle and its vessels, but utterly ignore the simple meaning of the words: G-d said to build it! Whatever happened to the plain ‘ol meaning of the words? Our hosts remind us exactly what happened: The Exile. It came in like a ghoul in the night, and messed up our minds. Tune in to Temple Talk and get straightened out!
March 10th, 7 PM – 10 PM, Israel time, (12 PM – 3 PM Eastern; 11 AM – 2 PM Central; 10 AM – 1 PM Mountain; 9 AM – 12 PM Pacific)
