One man, one voice, “We will do and we will obey!”  The unity of the nation of Israel expressed upon receiving Torah at Mount Sinai, and reflected each year on Jerusalem Day, which precedes the festival of Shavuot by one week, is made possible through the twelve distinct flags of the twelve distinct tribes of Israel who made their encampment in the wilderness, around the Tabernacle – the heart of the nation. Through the unity of each individual soul of Israel, Torah is brought down from heaven and made manifest on earth – here in the land of Israel!

First Fruits and the Torah of Earthiness: A Down-To-Earth Shavuot Primer

Don't Cry - Build“Take my tears!”  sings the legendary Jewish singer and entertainer, Avraham Fried. He’s referring to a plea to G-d, to use our tears to build the Third Holy Temple. Wait a minute… am I hearing you right? What Torah is this written in? What planet are we on? Well, as another great Jewish singer and entertainer sings, “People are crazy and times are strange.”  In this week’s uncut, unprecedented, uncensored Shavuot edition of Temple Talk, Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman, together with all of Israel, prepare to receive the Torah anew at Mount Sinai. But our hosts ask: Just what is the Torah we will be receiving? And how will it change us? And how will it change the world? And just what does it mean to be a Jew? “Take the rags away from your face, now ain’t the time for your tears”  sings our favorite perennial Jewish poet. Tune into this week’s explosive, exclusive and unchained all-time special Temple Talk… but it will cost you. Be prepared to accept responsibility. Be prepared to hear the truth.

From the opening “And He called”  of the book of Leviticus to the closing words of this week’s concluding reading, G-d has been direct, open and honest with Israel. He sets out His program for us and, in the end, it is up to us, and only up to us, to decide whether we are going to get on board, or not.

Parashat Bechukotei and Rabbi Akiva’s Vision of Consolation

The Word From G-d, and It’s Not Politically Correct: Galut is Death, Period

Jerusalem DayThe Book of Leviticus concludes this week with parashat Bechukotei, a Torah portion that features beautiful words of idyllic blessing guaranteeing Israel’s future when she but heeds her covenant with the Al-mighty. Conversely, harsh words of admonition describe the nation’s fate if she turns her back on G-d and puts her faith in “happenstance;” that leads to exile, tantamount to death itself. But Whoa! Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman conclude that it is up to Israel to turn the woe into whoa! and simply get with the program, in tune with the flow of all creation. No wonder this Torah portion, which hinges upon our realization of G-d’s hand upon us at all times and under all circumstances, leads us right up to the joyous celebration of Jerusalem Day, 5772, a day which reveals great Divine providence and G-d’s protection, even as He brings us out of the exile and back home to the Land of Israel. This week’s edition of Temple Talk is one for the Hall of Fame!

Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak

Emunah channel is here. For Info

How will we hide our faces in shame when we come to the next world empty handed! The situation has not been this bad since the day that the Torah was given on Mount Sinai.
Furthermore, the earlier generations fulfilled the Torah from conditions of great financial duress and under oppression from the nations. Today, we sit tranquilly in our houses, and when a matter of halachah arises, or halachic decisions need to be rendered, we search every nook and cranny to find relevant references. We search through topics until we find what we are looking for, or something close to it, and then proudly invoke the Rabbinical dictum: “Believe one who says: I labored and I found.”

In memory of George Thomas Brown
