Love and marriage: This is the story of the building of the Tabernacle in the desert. G-d so loved His people Israel that He could not bear to wait until they entered the land before they would build for Him a sanctuary. He ordered a temporary, portable sanctuary that would enable Him to dwell among Israel even during their forty year desert sojourn, so that they could begin at once their life together.

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

This week features:

“And The Winner of This Year’s Amalek-Act-Alike Contest is… “

Recreating The Rarefied Eden Environment For All People In Our Time

TetzaveAs we read parashat Tetzaveh  this week, the second of five consecutive weekly Torah readings dealing almost exclusively with the building of the Tabernacle, its sacred vessels and priestly garments, which conclude the book of Exodus, we receive yet another lesson in humility and brotherly love, prerequisites of the service in the Tabernacle/Holy Temple.

But while we are learning about unity of hearts and purpose these days, the generations old Amalek-Haman  arch of evil is flourishing all around us. World leaders are stumbling over one another in a mad rush to claim the “Amalek in Our Day” title for themselves. There is no doubt that being deeply engrossed and focused on Torah commandments concerning the building of the Tabernacle and our own present-day drive to build the Holy Temple will grant us the strength and wisdom to defeat the renewed Persian effort to destroy Israel. Remember this Shabbat to “obliterate the memory of Amalek from under the heavens. Do not forget.”  (Deut 25:19)

Next week: Rabbi Richman returns!

The sublime beauty, limitless embrace and unifying power of the Tabernacle, and later the Holy Temple, are all contained within the first sacred vessel Israel was commanded to build: the Ark of the Covenant. Just 2.5 cubits long, 1.5 cubits wide, and 1.5 cubits high, made of acacia wood and gold, and constructed by the hands of man, the Ark nevertheless managed to straddle the expanse between our finite world and our endless source.

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

This week features:

G-d to Israel: I’ll Let You Be in My World if I Can Be in Yours

Give or Take: Raising Up Our Hearts For G-d’s Sake

Build“And they shall make Me a sanctuary and I will dwell within them.”  G-d’s commandment to Israel to build for Him a place to dwell in our world marks the beginning of the completion of creation. From this moment on the task of perfecting the world that G-d created for us, falls on our shoulders. In a world marred with hypocrisy and violence and disdain for the image of G-d in which we were created, building for G-d a Holy Temple in Jerusalem could just be a game changer.

With Rabbi Richman in the USA teaching Torah, it is up to Yitzchak Reuven to connect the dots and draw the lines which stretch all the way from from “In the beginning”  to “take for Me an offering”  to what is happening in the world today.and what we can do about it!

Circle around G-d: Celebrate, honor and sanctify life by making Him your center. This is the message of Torah from Sinai, from the simplest of commandments to the joyful observance of the three pilgrimage festivals.

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

This week features:

Parashat Shekolim, Funding the Offerings, Fixing the Roads

The Temple Mount: Who Will Step In When the Hashemite Falls?

MishpatimWhat 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?

“I am HaShem your G-d.”  The first of the Ten Commandments instructs us to seek out G-d in our world. One such seeker was Yitro, a former idolater who overcame his doubts and recognized the one G-d, earning him the privilege of being forever associated with the receiving of the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai.
