We thank you for your gifts & generousity.
We are catching up with the modern world (even though we have been way ahead). We are going to drop the .wmv versions of our shows. MP4 has taken over, and is much higher quality. Most devices and computers actually are optimized for that format. If that is a problem, write and we will take care of you during this transition.

The crossing of the Sea of Reeds on dry land celebrated by the children of Israel in the Song of the Sea, was not just a passage from slavery to freedom, it was a passage from the past to an ever approaching future. It was a revelation shared by all the children of Israel, a premonition and prophecy and proof of the future resurrection of the dead.

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

This week features:

Obama’s Netanyahu Problem

The Future of the Free World & a Bathtub Full of Fruit Loops

ShevatThis week’s Temple Talk examines the word ‘maw,’ usually defined as ‘the jaws or throat of a voracious animal,’ but informally used as ‘the mouth or gullet of a greedy person.’ Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman are amazed that while the President of the United States of America refuses to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu because he is too busy, the POTUS does have time to meet with GloZell Green, a viral YouTube personality famous for sitting in a bathtub full of FruitLoops and cramming the cereal down her maw. Informally. But she certainly has a lot of views, and that’s all that matters! A world leader has the right to determine his priorities. In the meantime, the Free World continues to slip, senselessly and surreptitiously, into the insatiable, ravenous maw of Islam. But as Secretary of State Kerry says, “don’t blame Islam for the crimes of Islam! Let’s not lose our heads!” Anyway, as far as the world is concerned, it’s all Israel’s fault. All this on the backdrop of the Torah portion of Beshalach, in which the people of Israel, freed from Egypt, march through the Sea of Reeds on their way to destiny. Join the hosts of Temple Talk as they try to make sense of a world gone fruit loopy.

Time: Where does it come from? Where does it begin? Who determines time and what gift does time contain? “This month shall be to you the head of the months; to you it shall be the first of the months of the year.” Exodus 12:2 marks the beginning of time, as G-d gives the power of time to the children of Israel, and with it, the gift of freedom.

Revisiting the 10 Plagues

High Drama on the Stage of Humanity: Are You Getting This?

ShevatWas it Bob Dylan who sang, ‘Buckets of Rain, Buckets of Torah?’ Maybe not. But that’s exactly what the new month of Shevat is all about… during this month, the rains of winter ascend in the veins of the trees and bring renewal, climaxing on the holiday of Tu B’Shvat… and at the same time, the sweet and healing waters of Torah rain upon down us, as Moshe began to review the entire Torah before the Children of Israel beginning on the first day of the month of Shevat. In this week’s edition of Temple Talk, Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman share beautiful insights on the singularity of the month of Shevat, and its potential for personal growth. At the same time, as we read about the last three of the Ten Plagues in this week’s Torah portion of Bo, our hosts transpose the situation in ancient Egyptian onto our contemporary milieu, and ask aloud: Are we getting the message?

The ten plagues that made G-d’s name known in all the world happened many years ago in the land of Egypt. The process they began of bringing the knowledge of G-d’s presence and power to all humankind for all generations continues till today. They resound and reverberate every time a Pharaoh arises and says “I do not know Hashem.”

The Clash of Civilizations

Coming to Your Town Soon: The Battle Between Good and Evil

ParisThis week’s Torah portion of parashat Va’eira features seven of the Ten Plagues. Towards the end of the portion, the Pharoah finally seems to be having a sincere change of heart, declaring ‘This time I have sinned; G-d is the righteous one, and I and my people are the wicked ones.’ But it turned out that he was just up to his tricks again, and he quickly reverted back to his old self – total denying G-d. As the world mourns and expresses shock and outrage over last week’s terror attacks in France, Temple Talk’s Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman present a searing, difficult and brutally honest analysis of these current events. There’s no mincing of words here, and there’s no going back: either the world comes to its senses, or plunges irrevocably into the gaping abyss of insatiable evil.

From the moment of his birth until he came of age, Moshe was nurtured, kept alive and cared for by women of undaunted courage and unshakable fear of G-d. Of these righteous women, none was more striking in her compassion and desire to do good than Bitya, the daughter of Pharaoh, who rescued Moshe, raised him and gave him the name for which he is known until today.
