This week features:
Pillars of Cloud and Fire, But I’m Just a Natural Man
The Indescribable Joy of Mourning for the Temple and the Jewish Problem
It has begun. The Seventeenth of Tammuz has launched the annual cycle of mourning over the loss of the Holy Temple. But where is it taking us? With even more than their usual sang froid, Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman present a concise and analytic review of the Three Weeks of mourning, in which they bemoan the bemoaning. Make no mistake about it: This program focuses on one verse, (Zech. 8:19) “This is what the Hashem Al-mighty says: “The fasts of the fourth, fifth, seventh and tenth months will become joyful and glad occasions and happy festivals for Judah. Love truth and peace” … and asks, OK, now what? How will that verse be fulfilled? Our hosts also explain why this week’s Torah portion of parashat Pinchas is the perfect companion to this time of year. The message is resoundingly positive and you won’t want to miss it!
