As we continue to reflect upon the theme of the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai which dominates this month of Sivan, the Land of Israel seems beset by enemies who gather at our very door. We are also confronted by the enemies within, who seek to uproot Israel’s connection to the Temple Mount, Jerusalem and the entire Land. But there is a plan for Israel’s survival and indeed, for Israel’s radiant triumph, and much of that plan is foreshadowed in this week’s Torah portion of Beha’alotcha. As Israel travels through the desert towards the Promised Land, it is up to our generation to fix the mistakes of the Generation of the Desert, and interpret the Divine signals for moving forward towards destiny. Tune in to this week’s edition of Temple Talk as Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman examine events in the Land of Israel and the world in the light of this week’s Torah portion.
