This week features:
Netanyahu, Obama, and the Passover Offering
With the glorious festival of Passover just one week away, this week’s inspiring edition of Temple Talk finds Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman focusing on the nation of Israel’s eternal responsibility to bring the Passover offering to the Holy Temple… or at the very least, to the Temple Mount. Without it, the festival is a pale reflection of its true self. How do we feel about this eternal covenant? At the same time, we continue to confront the timeless truths of the Divine service in the Torah readings of the book of Vayikra. It is nothing less than the identity and destiny of the people of Israel that is at stake… and indeed, in the wake of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s reelection victory, once again the very identity and destiny of the people of Israel seem to be under attack, as US President Obama gives expression to his personal resentment and dislike of Netanyahu. Is this a modern Passover story? Tune in to this week’s no hold barred edition of Temple Talk!
