This week features:
The Voice of Your Brother’s Blood Cries Out to Me
Hashem, Your G-d is Testing You, to Know Whether You Love Hashem…
In these waning end days of the month of the Consoling Father, consolation is indeed in order, and much needed, as the citizens of the State of Israel grapple with the government’s mind-boggling decision to free 104 convicted murderers and torturers of Jewish men, women, children, and unborn children, as a “pre-condition” to the next round of suicidal, self-destructive “peace talks.” This week’s edition of Temple Talk finds Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman in somber reflection, brutal analysis and heartfelt prayer, plugging everything in to this week’s Torah reading of parashat Re’eh. Ultimately our fate is not determined in Washington – it is to be determined here, in the Land of Israel, as G-d tests His people, whom He calls in this very week’s Torah portion His “children” and His “treasure,” urging them through these events to return to Him and to set the course of their own destiny back on track.
