This week features:
Parashat Shekolim, Funding the Offerings, Fixing the Roads
The Temple Mount: Who Will Step In When the Hashemite Falls?
What a journey it’s been: The ten plagues, the midnight exodus from Egypt, the crossing of the Sea of Reeds, manna, Amalek, Mount Sinai, the Ten Commandments, lightning and thunder and now… how to deal with an ox that gores? Where is parashat Mishpatim, which deals extensively with legal matters between man and man, coming from, where is it leading us, and why does Torah place it here right in the midst of a chain of earth-shattering and heaven-shaking events defining forever the relationship between G-d and man?
While Rabbi Chaim Richman is in the USA preparing for a series of teachings, Yitzchak Reuven takes on the weekly Torah reading, the upcoming month of Adar and the current chaos tearing apart the Middle East. The Obama administration seeks to reap the benefits of the catastrophic meltdown by dancing with Iran to the tune of a Muslim bomb, but will Israel be ready to step in when Jordan’s Abdullah loses his grip on the Temple Mount?
