This week features:
In Praise of Civil Disobedience: The Righteous Women of Israel
The Perfect Storm and the Divine Promise of “Your Sins Shall be White as Snow”
As the burgeoning Egyptian exile begins to take center stage this week with the reading of the first Torah portion in the book of Exodus, Israel is still covered with the snow of last week’s epic storm that began on the Fast of Tevet. What’s this unprecedented storm got to do with G-d’s Divine promises to Israel – and the book of Isaiah? And what’s John Kerry got to do with anything? Leave it to Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman to find immense spiritual significance in the timing of Israel’s unusual winter weather, tying it directly to the messages of our Torah readings and the spiritual cycle beginning this week. Grab your mug of hot cocoa, snuggle up by the fireplace and listen to a particularly heart-warming edition of Temple Talk!
