This week features:
Temple Talk Sukkot Special
Welcome 5775, the Year of the Holy Temple!
From the sobering judgment of Rosh HaShana, the New Year, through the awesome cleansing of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, we now head straight for the protective shadow of the sukkah booth, our temporary dwellings reminiscent of the Divine clouds of glory that shielded Israel throughout her temporary desert wanderings. If there’s one thing that the glorious holidays of Tishrei remind us of, it’s that everything in this world is temporary. That’s why we need to sanctify and elevate every moment. Which is exactly what happens in the Holy Temple! Join Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman this week for a special Tishrei roundup, reflecting on this Divine cycle of time all the way through to Simchat Torah, when we begin reading the Torah once again from the beginning.
Plus: So much has happened this past year that has helped to pave the way towards the rebuilding of the Holy Temple in our time! Now the Temple Institute is beginning its newest, most ambitious program of preparing blueprints for the Temple sanctuary… and during this holiday of Sukkot, a special, joyous part of the Temple service will be reenacted for the first time in almost two thousand years! A Temple Talk you will not want to miss. Temple Talk will not be recorded during the festival of Sukkot… the next edition of Temple Talk will be on Tuesday, Oct. 21st. Chag Sameach!
