Chanukah: Making Miracles Happen
What is the source of the powerful light of 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!

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