This week features:
Is the Holy Temple a Building of Stone, or a Castle in the Air?
The World to Israel: We’re Not Anti-Semitic, But Why Don’t You Just Die Already?
As the entire people of Israel read the weekly Torah portions that describe the desert Tabernacle, forerunner of the Holy Temple, and all the details of its appointments, Temple Talk takes umbrage at those who think that the more we study, and the nicer we behave, well…. suddenly the Holy Temple will materialize. Is it possible to divest a Torah commandment of its simple and plain meaning? What happened to our reasoning during the long exile? This week’s amazing edition of Temple Talk grapples with the true meaning of the Torah’s commandment to erect a house for G-d, and our hosts take a long, hard look at G-d’s plans for His people Israel, vs. the rules that the nations of the world try to foist upon Israel.
