This week features:
The Temple Mount: To See and To Be Seen
A Mountain, A Field, and a House: Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the holy forefathers of Israel, refine the concept of the Holy Temple.
The tenth and final test of Abraham’s faith takes place in this week’s Torah portion of Vayera: Akeidat Yitzchak, the Binding of Isaac, a seminal event in the consciousness and development of the people of Israel. This week on Temple Talk, Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman explore Abraham’s unique relationship with the Temple Mount, and its connection with the current struggle over sovereignty, the lie of the ‘status quo,’ and the perennial battle between truth and falsehood that takes place at the holiest place on earth. Rabbi Richman will be on a speaking tour in the USA during the month of November, and Yitzchak Reuven will be flying Temple Talk solo for the next several weeks. Details of the rabbi’s appearances in the USA are available on the Temple Institute’s facebook page and at www.templeinstitute.org
