As we begin reading the Book of Exodus this week, Temple Talk introduces the man Moshe, the Redeemer of Israel, and examines the anti-Semitic decrees of Pharaoh against the newly-emerging nation of Israel, in the context of modern-day anti-Semitism.

Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Chaim Richman also discuss and analyze a recent New York Times editorial written by a professor of philosophy who opines that perhaps it wouldn't be such a tragedy for this world if the human race would simply cease to exist...maybe it even deserves extinction, he writes.

What do you think? What would the Torah have to say? Tune in for an unforgettable, inspiring and informative episode of Temple Talk.
