Rabbi Richman and Yitzchak Reuven express their thankfulness and passion for the State of Israel in this moving Temple Talk special edition for the 63rd Independence Day of the State of Israel. They unabashedly ask: What clearer indication could there be that we are on the way towards the rebuilding of the Holy Temple in our time?

This week from the TEMPLE INSTITUTE:

WEEKLY TORAH PORTION: BEHAR: Will be posted right after Yom Ha'atzma'ut!

LIGHT TO THE NATIONS, with Rabbi Chaim Richman:  UNDERSTANDING THE TEMPLE OFFERINGS, PART III: MAINTAINING OUR HUMANITY: Man's lower nature seeks to blur the distinction between man's celestial inclinations and the bestial reality of the animal world. The Temple offerings provide an uncompromising reaffirmation of man's intrinsic holiness. Available Thursday, May 12.

FORTY-NINE DAYS that can change your world: The forty-nine days between Passover and Shavuot, (between leaving Egypt and receiving Torah at Sinai), are days laden with awesome spiritual potential. The opportunity for growth is ours for the taking. We must count our days and make our days count!
The Temple Institute celebrates the 49 days.
