This week features:
Israel & Jordan, The Strangest Bedfellows
The Life and Death Struggle of Religious Freedom on the Temple Mount
This week’s Torah portion of parashat Vayera finds Avraham, patriarch of the nation of Israel, being called to ‘the land of Moriah,’ where he will face his ultimate test – the binding of his son Yitzchak upon an altar. Mysteriously, there is no place known as ‘the land of Moriah’… but in this week’s passionate edition of Temple Talk, Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman explain why the entire land of Israel, and indeed the whole world, is an extension of Mount Moriah – the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. On the backdrop of the attempted assassination of Yehuda Glick, and the appearance of a new ‘hit list’ on Arab social media that includes one of our show’s hosts, Temple Talk pulls out all the stops and plunges into an intense and searing reality check of why the Temple Mount has become the focus of attention, and what the battle for religious freedom on the Temple Mount means for Israel and all humanity. This program is the climax of a decade of Temple Talk programming, don’t miss it!
