This week features:
Iyar and the Sanctification of Earthiness
The Blessings and Admonition of Parashat Bechukotai: The Reality Test of our Lives
This week has hosted three important dates in this special month of Iyar: The Biblically-mandated Second Passover (Iyar 14), the day upon which the Manna began to fall in the desert (15 Iyar), and Lag B’Omer, the 33rd day of the Counting of the Omer, anniversary of the passing of the famed sage Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai (18 Iyar). This week’s fascinating edition of Temple Talk finds our hosts connecting the dots between these unusual days, and expounding further upon the unique qualities of the month of Iyar. Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Chaim Richman delve deeply into the Torah’s message of sanctifying the physicality of our world and finding Hashem’s presence in everything.
