The good, the bad and the blessing. It’s all here in parashat Ki Tavo. From the sublime perfect moment of being alive in G-d’s Holy Temple, first-fruits in hand, heart overflowing with joy and gratitude, declaring our recognition of G-d’s hand in every thing we do and every soul we touch, to the nightmare wasteland of the admonitions. Joy, community, thankfulness? Helplessness, despair, isolation? The choice is ours.

Just as G-d’s presence fills the world but G-d is not the world, so too, G-d’s mercy fills creation but but G-d can’t be defined by His attribute of mercy. Some commandments, such as shiluach haken – the chasing away of the mother bird before taking her eggs or chicks – are expressions of G-d’s mercy. Other commandments, such as the commandment to utterly destroy Amalek, come to show us that mercy alone cannot sustain the world, and that the revelation of G-d’s mercy alone cannot define our commitment to perform His commandments.

This week features:

The ‘Escape Ramp’ of Elul

The Monstrous Hordes of the Islamic State: The World is in Denial

Ki TeitzeiIt’s Elul, repentance is in the air, the King is in the field, and it’s Temple Talk’s favorite time of year. It’s a time to get down, get real, and slam on the brakes of lives that at times seem to be running out of control. Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman continue to wax eloquent on the special qualities and spiritual propensities of this month, shedding new light and sharing their innovative thoughts. At the same time, our hosts present a global reality check on Islamic terror vs. the world’s preoccupation with Israel, and deliver a blistering critique of the world’s apathy in the face of the growing horrors of the Islamic State. After all, who’s really destroying the world? Is it the Islamic monsters of ISIS, or the Jews who are building houses for their children in the Land of Israel, who dare to ‘expropriate’ land in Eretz Yisrael?

The great concern Torah evinces for an unsolved murder, as in the case of the ‘axed calf’  is a harsh contrast to the laws of warfare which precede it and call upon all Israelite warriors to be fearless and merciless when fighting a divinely mandated war. Yet there is no contradiction between these seemingly disparate commandments. On the contrary, it is because Torah holds up and sanctifies the life of every individual that we must be unsparing when fighting enemies who seek our destruction.

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

This week features:

The Month of Elul

Parashat Shoftim and Operation Protective Edge: “Who is the man who is afraid to win this war? Let him go and return to his house.”

ShoftimThe month of Elul  has arrived! Elul  is a time for teshuva (repentance), and resolve for the future. This week’s edition of Temple Talk welcomes the beautiful month of Elul, a time of serious soul-searching, introspection and spiritual growth, in preparation for the coming Days of Awe. Our hosts remind us that this month’s special propensity for getting things back on track applies not only to each individual, but is equally true on the national level. Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman wonder aloud if our national teshuva  for Elul  might just be… to win this war?! Or are we actually afraid to win? Should the IDF be ‘containing’ Hamas, ‘restoring quiet,’ or destroying the enemy? Echoes can be heard reverberating from this week’s Torah portion of Shoftim, wherein we learn of the anointed priest who warns the Israelite soldiers before going out to battle: (Deut. Ch. 20) “Who is the man who is fearful and fainthearted? Let him go and return to his house, and let him not melt the heart of his fellows…”

Who is that false prophet that Torah warns us against? How can he perform wonders if he is false, and if he is false why does he appear? Why does G-d empower him to perform wonders, if not to ensnare Israel? There are many false prophets today in the business of making false promises promising peace and prosperity if only Israel will turn her back on G-d’s Torah. We have been warned!
