Happy Birthday Blessings to Karen S.
This week features:
The Eyes of Hashem Your G-d are Always Upon the Land of Israel
The Eternal Message of Tu B’Av: Get Up Out of Your Graves and Start to Live!
The music is back on Temple Talk. This week’s parashat Eikev tells us of the unparalleled perfection of the Land of Israel, as Menachem Av, the month of the consoling father enters into its second half, bringing with it healing, light and the eternal love of G-d’s promises of consolation to Israel. Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman explore the paradigm shift of this month “from mourning to dance” (Psalms 30), and discover some of the eternal messages of Tu B’Av, the ‘minor’ holiday of the fifteenth day of this month, which was a major festival in Temple times and today, intuitively, has become a day of celebrating love in Israel, even as the day beckons the soon rebuilding of the Holy Temple. Our hosts reveal that there is much more to Tu B’Av than dating, love and marriage… the day conveys no less than the secret of the return of prophecy to Israel, and its power shines for the rest of the year!
