This week features:
The Clash of Civilizations
Coming to Your Town Soon: The Battle Between Good and Evil
This week’s Torah portion of parashat Va’eira features seven of the Ten Plagues. Towards the end of the portion, the Pharoah finally seems to be having a sincere change of heart, declaring ‘This time I have sinned; G-d is the righteous one, and I and my people are the wicked ones.’ But it turned out that he was just up to his tricks again, and he quickly reverted back to his old self – total denying G-d. As the world mourns and expresses shock and outrage over last week’s terror attacks in France, Temple Talk’s Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman present a searing, difficult and brutally honest analysis of these current events. There’s no mincing of words here, and there’s no going back: either the world comes to its senses, or plunges irrevocably into the gaping abyss of insatiable evil.
