This week features:
Parashat Shelach: We Won’t Get Fooled Again
The Sin of the Spies: Stopping the Cycle of Failure
A sobering Temple Talk is this week’s edition, as Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman take umbrage at the debacle of the spies who returned from their mission in this week’s Torah portion of Shelach, and set the hearts of the people of Israel against entering the beloved and precious Promised Land. Modern-day spies may urge us to reject the Land of Israel, but we won’t get fooled again. Been there, wandering in that desert for forty years, done that: It’s time to fix that evil, and for us all to walk upright into the Land of Israel, and build the Holy Temple.
