One Dream, One G-d, One Truth: How a young Hebrew, sold into slavery by his brothers, thought to be dead by his father, and thrown into prison a thousand miles from home, alone and unknown, was able to rise to the top of the Pharaonic ladder in Egypt, liberate the powerful potentate from the bondage of his own societal mindset, rescue the world from famine and reunite with his father and brothers.

Chanukah: Making Miracles Happen

What is the source of the powerful light of Chanukah?

Chanukah Reunited in Jerusalem after a break of several weeks, Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman are back together for this week’s moving edition of Temple Talk. Our hosts present a Chanukah tour de force, including a revised definition of the nature of a miracle. What constitutes a miracle today, and what was the Chanukah miracle really all about? For a deeper, yet practical understanding, the perplexed need look no further than to our very own generation. This week’s Temple Talk provides a preview into an unprecedented and historic step towards the resumption of the service in the Holy Temple: the Temple Institute’s production of pure olive oil for the Temple menorah, created according to all the complex laws of Biblical purity. A modern-day Chanukah miracle!

The high drama of parashat Vayeshev comes to teach us two things, which are really only one: We must be ever ready to take upon ourselves the task that G-d has chosen for us, and our time on this earth is not for our own leisure, but to realize the role that G-d has intended for us.

Yaakov avinu’s (our forefather Jacob’s) midnight encounter with a mysterious angel: Who was this angel, what was his purpose, and by what name was he known? Yaakov overcomes the angel, and by doing so gains insight into all these questions. He also acquires for himself a new name, a new identity, and a new role to play in establishing the Divine presence here on this earth.

Vayishlach (Genesis 32:4-36:43)

Avraham saw his appointed meeting place with G-d as a distant and foreboding mountain, (Mount Moriah), and Yitzchak envisioned the Holy Temple to be a field, accessible and alive. But it was Yaakov who understood the Holy Temple to be a home, a nurturing, loving center in which G-d and all mankind can embrace.

Yitzchak avinu (Isaac our patriarch) was a man of vision blinded by the light of G-d’s brilliant and hidden presence. He lived, he died, and he lived again to bless his son Yaakov, ‘ish tam,’ the perfectible man, with the task of bringing G-d’s light into the world for all to perceive.

Temple Talk is a weekly internet radio webcast with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven of the Temple Institute.

This week features:

Massacre In Jerusalem

The Muslim View On Jewish Prayer: On The Temple Mount – Or In A Har Nof Synagogue

Chayei SaraThis week’s Torah portion of Toldot  tells of the conflict between Yaakov  and Esav  that began while yet in their mother Rivka’s  womb. The implications of this dichotomy, bespeaking worlds in collision, seem to have endless repercussions that reverberate for all eternity. This week’s sobering edition of Temple Talk was recorded just hours after a horrible massacre was perpetrated by Arab terrorists in a Jerusalem neighborhood synagogue during morning prayers, leaving four Jews murdered, and many wounded. A shaken Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman examine the not-so-silent Third Intifida, Israel’s dire need of authentic leadership not dependent on Esav’s  favors, and the connection between Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount, and Jewish prayer in a neighborhood synagogue.

NOTE TO ALL OUR LISTENERS: Temple Talk will be breaking for three weeks. The next edition of Temple Talk will be broadcast, with G-d’s help, on Kislev 24 – Dec. 16th, 2014.
