They struck terror in the hearts of Balak and Moav. They threatened to “lick up the earth like an ox licks up the green fields.” Their very presence signified the end of the old order, their very existence augured a change in the way things are. Why? Because “they have covered the “eye” of the land, and they are stationed opposite me.” Who is this frightful ‘horde’? Meet the “assembly” of Israel, “a people [that] has come out of Egypt!”

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

This week features:

Straight Talk on the Islamization of Planet Earth

Parashat Balak, The BDS Movement and the Roots of Anti-Semitism: Bilaam in the Guise of a University Professor

walking forwardRight smack dab in the middle of the month of Tammuz, the wave of Islamic Ramadan terror which kicked the Muslim month off here in Israel, runs unabated, manifest in murderous assaults against Jews. But Israel isn’t the only place that is witness to the Muslim holy month’s blood lust… thousands of innocents are executed by Isis in Syria, be-headings and other atrocities are becoming commonplace occurrences in civilized countries… but for some inexplicable reason, the world is blind to the existence of Islamic terror. In this extremely candid and bold edition of Temple Talk, Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Chaim Richman explore and analyze the creeping Islamization of planet earth, and the world’s predictably politically correct response, in the light of this week’s intriguing Torah portion of Balak, and the archetypal heathen prophet Bilaam. Warning: If a reality check stresses you out, don’t listen to this show!

The red heifer is the symbol of the reality of life, as opposed to the illusion of death that can grip us and render us unfit to stand in the presence of the Shechinah which fills the Holy Temple and its courtyards. The lives of Moshe, Aharon and Miriam, whose deaths occur or are foretold in this week’s parasha, are emblematic of the message of the red heifer, whose power transcends life and defies human comprehension.

Chukat (Numbers 19:1-22:1)

This week features:

The Amazing Tammuz/Ramadan Dichotomy of Spiritual Growth

Moshe and the Ordinance of the Red Heifer: True Humility is the Secret of Purity

walking forwardThis week we read the Torah portion of Chukat, featuring the great mystery of the Red Heifer as well as the Divine decree against Moshe entering into the Land of Israel. And as the people of Israel face the challenges of the month of Tammuz, this week’s hard-hitting edition of Temple Talk looks at the parallel universe of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, a highly-touted time for ‘awareness of G-d’ which is celebrated with terror and the murder of Jews. This episode of Temple Talk is not for the politically correct!

Brilliant, wealthy, influential, and tasked with transporting the Ark of the Covenant, Korach had it all. But it wasn’t enough. He wanted more. Korach wanted to usurp Moshe’s leadership and he wanted to commandeer Aharon’s role as Kohen Gadol. Like all who reach too far, Korach was ultimately buried by his own perfidy, avarice, and unbridled ambition.

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

This week features:

The Angel of Death and the Secret of the Incense

The New Month of Tammuz, Repentance, and the Rebellion of Korach: It’s Too Late, Baby

walking forwardThe month of Tammuz has arrived… hot, tense, and traditionally, tragic. This is the month which marks the ‘beginning of the end,’ the period of mourning for the destruction of the Holy Temple which begins with the fast of Tammuz 17. But in this week’s edition of Temple Talk, Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Chaim Richman insist that the month of Tammuz doesn’t have to be that way. It’s a time of challenge that presents us with an opportunity to fix mistakes of the past. We can start by healing the negative aspects of our vision, and endeavor to see only good. It’s a time for walking forward and being positive. So stop walking sideways, like a crab! If you want to know what that means, tune in to this week’s dynamic edition of Temple Talk!

The generation of the desert paid a high price for their lack of belief in themselves, but received the sweetest and most profound affirmation of G-d’s belief in them: the promise that their children will indeed enter the land, build the Holy Temple, and share time and space in the promised land and at the chosen place with the one true eternal G-d of Israel.
