Iyar and the Sanctification of Earthiness


The Blessings and Admonition of Parashat Bechukotai: The Reality Test of our Lives

Bechukotai

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.

The life force that G-d bestows upon all creation transcends time and space and invests all creation with holiness. By the laws of shemittah (7 year sabbatical cycle) and Yovel (49 year Jubilee cycle), Torah commands Israel to take possession of both time and space in order to reveal and make visible the holiness in G-d’s creation.

Behar (Leviticus 25:1-26:2)

Parashat Behar is read on Shabbat:

Iyar 13 5776/May 21, 2016 (Israel)

Iyar 20 5776/May 28, 2016 (Diaspora)

The Holy Temple is not simply a unique place and time within which G-d’s presence dwells and can be experienced by all who enter. The Holy Temple, within which G-d’s presence is overwhelmingly in the here and now, shapes for all humanity, near and far, the space and time in which we live and the way we perceive our own place in space and time.  The appointed Temple festivals around which our lives are centered, and the detailed precision of the daily service in the Holy Temple,  create a spiritual gravitational pull that frees us from our own misconceptions and disorientation and puts us in step with the Creator of the universe.

Emor (Leviticus 21:1 – 24:23)
Parashat Emor is read on Shabbat:
Iyar 6, 5776/May 14, 2016 (Israel)
Iyar 13/May 21, 2016 (Diaspora)

Tune in to this week’s passionate installment of Temple Talk to find out, and to hear what G-d would say if He were allowed to speak at the ‘Peace Talks:’ “The Land is Mine!”

Temple Talk’s Israel Independence Day Special


Secrets of the Month of Iyar & the ‘Biblical’ Holiday of Independence Day: The State of Israel Brings Blessing & Healing to the Whole World

Pesach

Israel’s calendar has now reached the month of Iyar, a ‘quiet’ month sandwiched between Passover and Shavuot. But in our time, this month – the anniversary of the building of King Solomon’s Temple – has become host to a new reality: the establishment of the State of Israel. This week’s rousing edition of Temple Talk is a celebration of the miracle of the State of Israel, as hosts Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Chaim Richman focus on the unique confluence of Yom Ha’Atzma’ut, Israel’s Independence Day, with other events of the month of Iyar, and the Biblical significance of modern events as the prophetic fulfillment of G-d’s promises to His people.

“You shall be holy, for I, HaShem, your G-d, am holy.” How is that possible? What is required? How is it to be achieved? Parashat Kedoshim describes what it takes to be holy because G-d is holy, and why this imperative, which applies to the entire nation, is included in Leviticus, the guide-book for Kohanim.

Kedoshim (Leviticus 19:1 – 20:27)
Parashat Kedoshim is read on Shabbat:
Nisan 29, 5776/May 7, 2016

Emancipate Yourself from Mental Slavery

Welcoming the Month of Iyar and Spiritual Secrets of Counting the Omer

Pesach

Returning to Temple Talk after the festival of Passover, Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Chaim Richman offer a fascinating, up-to-the moment analysis of what is happening on the Temple Mount and what it means for the people of Israel. Vying Muslim terrorist factions express outrage over the unprecedented numbers of Jewish visitors to the Holy site, and the media parrots its worn, tired cliches and canned responses, but this is the generation that swears an oath of allegiance to the rebuilding of the Holy Temple, and nothing can stand it our way. In the meantime, as the people of Israel joyously fulfill the commandment of counting the Omer, our hosts discuss the amazing spiritual potential and challenges contained in these potent days. Don’t miss the insights and information in this week’s edition of Temple Talk!
