This week features:

Abraham, the European Ban and the Secret of Circumcision

Celebrating the Anniversary of Maimonides’ Historic Visit to the Temple Mount

our patriarch Abraham“Who inspired the one from east?”  asks the prophet Isaiah rhetorically in this week’s haftorah  reading. He is referring, of course, to our patriarch Abraham, the first of the true believers and the “friend of G-d,”  who literally bursts upon the world scene in this week’s Torah portion of Lech Lecha. This week’s Temple Talk focuses on the unique mission of Abraham, the first Jew, who bequeathed a legacy of counter-culture activism and spiritual revolution to his descendants, and taught the world that Hashem is One. Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman also discuss the significance of the 6th day of MarCheshvan, this week’s 848th anniversary of the famed Rambam’s historic, life-threatening ascent to the Temple Mount. Just who was Maimonides and why did he risk his life to travel to Jerusalem and visit the Temple Mount? Why did he take measures to insure that his descendants observe this day, till the end of time? Tune into a fascinating, inspirational and educational edition of Temple Talk!

In this epic teaching of the opening two parashot  of the book of Genesis, B’reishith  and Noach, Rabbi Richman reveals what went wrong with a world so perfectly created that G-d Himself declared “It was very good,”  and how that world, within a span of ten generations descended into a miasma of human depravity, and the role that water played in the creation of the world, in the punishment of the wicked and in the redemption of the pure at heart.

What was King David’s connection to the hidden waters of the tahom  – תהום – buried deep within the bowels of the earth, what is the role that these hidden waters will play in the future redemption of all mankind, and how is this redemptive process presaged and choreographed in the awesome celebration of the Water Libation enacted each day of the Sukkot pilgrimage festival in the Holy Temple?

B’reishith-Noach (Genesis 1:1-11:32)

Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak

Emunah channel is here. For Info

1)    One who trusts in G-d accepts His judgment under all conditions, and thanks Him for good as well as for bad, as Iyov (Job) said: “G-d has given and G-d has taken; blessed be the Name of G-d (Iyov 1:21), and it is written: Of grace and judgment I will sing” (Tehillim 101:1).
2)    One who trust in G-d — his soul is at rest and his heart is at ease in the face of decrees, because he knows that the Creator will direct them for his good in the world and hereafter, as David, peace be upon him, said: “My soul, wait quietly for G-d, for my hope comes from Him” (Tehillim 62:6).
3)    Even if one who trusts in G-d employs the means to a livelihood, he does not, in his heart, rely on those means, nor does he expect that profit or loss will accure to him unless that is G-d’s Will.
4)    One who trust in G-d, if he has anything beyond what he needs for his maintenance, spends it on what please the Creator, with a generous soul and a cheerful heart, as it is written: “For all is from You, and from Your hand have we given to You” (Devarim Ha-Yamim 1, 29:14).
5)    One who trusts in G-d occupies himself with worldly means in order to provide for his latter end, his final destination. Only when he is sure that a certain occupation is safe for all his religious and secular interests will he engage in it.
6)    One who trusts in G-d is beloved to all classes of people. They feel favorably toward him, because they are sure that he will not do them harm. They are confident that he will not angry with them, and they harbor no fear of him in respect to their wives, or their money.
