This week features:
The Grass is Always Greener on the Other Side of the Jordan
Things Better Left Unsaid Dept.: The Unmentionable Innuendo of John Kerry
Got Flocks? In this week’s concluding Torah portions, Reuven, Gad, and half of Menashe have plenty of livestock, and are envious of the green grass in the Transjordan. Their flocks take precedence over their children. But their worldview was based on misplaced priorities. This week’s Temple Talk takes umbrage with these tribes’ spiritual heirs – those who place their material possessions over the fate of their children. Yitzhak Reuven and Rabbi Richman deliver a passionate overview of our generation’s entrance into the Land of Israel. Plus: John Kerry, wherefore art thou? While we appreciate your hairdo, have you noticed that the world is crumbling into an abyss of decadence and destruction? Yet as always, Israel remains the intransigent troublemaker.
Plus: Stay tuned for the world premiere of the Temple Institute’s all new video production, “The Children are Ready – Tisha b’Av 5773” which will be available for viewing on Sunday, July 7th. A sequel to last year’s highly successful “The Children are Ready” which has over 400,000 views, this year’s Tisha b’Av video message is even more amazing!
