A7 Radio's "Temple Talk" with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven
Follow Israel Radio on
Yaakov, our illustrious patriarch, flees from Esav's enmity and winds up in the arms of that arch spin-master, Lavan. But on his way to the land of Charan, he stops off at the Temple Mount, there to cement his relationship with the G-d of Israel and all his future generations. In this week's high-energy edition of Temple Talk, Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman have a special guest in the studio: none other than our good friend Mr. Jim Long, famed Noahide author, Egyptologist, filmmaker and noted lecturer on the Noahide laws...as well as on the Oral Tradition of the Torah. Jim turns his inimitable wit and wisdom to the subject of Yaakov and Esav, especially as featured in his new upcoming book, Blood Brothers. Together, we ponder the relationships and reality of Yaakov and his nemesis, locked in a multi-level struggle to this very day.
Also this week from the TEMPLE INSTITUTE:
WEEKLY TORAH PORTION: VAYEITZEI: Avraham saw his appointed meeting place with G-d as a distant and foreboding mountain, (Mount Moriah), and Yitzchak envisioned the Holy Temple to be a field, accessible and alive. But it was Yaakov who understood the Holy Temple to be a home, a nurturing, loving center in which G-d and all mankind can embrace.
TORAH OBSERVANCE FOR GENTILES, PART II: This teaching was originally recorded a number of years ago before a private audience of Noahides (G-d fearing Gentiles) in Texas, and this is the first time it is being made public. Rabbi Chaim Richman delivers a candid and groundbreaking explanation of practical Torah observance for Righteous Gentiles.
