This week features:
A Tale for Our Time: President Obama and the Passover Sacrifice
Passover and the Mission of Israel: To Fearlessly Slaughter the False Gods
Passover, the glorious festival of freedom, is preceded by another holy day, a day of preparation and portent: the tenth day of Nisan. In this week’s special kosher for Passover edition of Temple Talk, Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman make the connection between what happened on the tenth of Nisan, and our modern-day observance of Passover. Even as all of Israel prepares for a glorious and fulfilling holiday, the timing of President Obama’s visit to Jerusalem (not to mention the purpose of his trip) carries deep spiritual significance – and challenges. Tune into this Passover primer as our hosts continue to campaign for the renewal of the Passover offering and the realignment of Israel’s hearts and minds with our true national identity. We wish all of our listeners a joyous and kosher Passover – this year, today, in Jerusalem!
