Tune into this week's Temple Talk in which Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven dedicate all their effort to connecting the dots between Yosef's rise and fall and rise and fall and rise to the top in Egypt and the battle of the valiant Chashmoneans and their followers who fought a deadly war against the Greek oppressors, (and their Hellenizing Jewish supporters), who tried by dint of decree to darken the eyes of Israel and cause them to forget the Holy Torah. Wherein lies the Chanuka miracle: In the military victories of the few against the many, in the willingness of the oppressed Jews to rise up against the foreign occupiers, or in the once cruse of oil that burned for eight days, or in all three? Gird your loins as you prepare for this powerful edition of Temple Talk, and prepare yourselves for battle, because the same forces of darkness and dancing all around us today. They seek to darken our eyes and eliminate our memory. We Will Not Let Them Do It!

Also this week from the TEMPLE INSTITUTE:

WEEKLY TORAH PORTION: MIKETZ: How strong is the bond between a parent and a child? A father and a son? Ya'akov could not be comforted by Yosef's loss. Just what did Ya'akov know concerning Yosef's apparent demise? Why was there a "conspiracy of silence" surrounding Yosef's disappearance?
