Why wait any longer for the world to begin? Rosh Chodesh Nisan happens this coming Shabbat, and that means that time is about to start! On that day, "the first day of the first of the months," the Tabernacle was erected, and the Divine Presence began to dwell in this world with man. Not since man's salad days back in the Garden of Eden had this relationship been manifest! No wonder Nisan is the time of the Exodus from Egypt, the time of spring, the time of the earth blossoming forth in joy and's all a reflection of G-d's joy at being welcomed back into this world again. What a perfect time to begin reading the enigmatic, ever-fresh book of Vayikra, otherwise known as Leviticus, G-d's own whole-earth manual for "synchronization." The question is: Do we get it? This week's Temple Talk examines the breathless confluence of the beginning of this widely misunderstood third book of the Torah, the month of Nisan, the special Torah reading for Rosh Chodesh Nisan, - and of course, the major upcoming Temple event, the Third Annual Temple Mount Awareness Day six-hour live stream video happening, this Sunday March 25th.

Also this week from the TEMPLE INSTITUTE:

WEEKLY TORAH PORTION: VAYIKRA: Inside the Tabernacle we return to Gan Eden and to the pristine, sacred and intimate relationship with G-d that was intended from the very start.


On March 25th, the second day of the month of Nisan, from 5 PM - 11 PM, Israel time, (11 AM - 5 PM Eastern; 10 AM - 4 PM Central; 9 AM - 3 PM Mountain; 8 AM - 2 PM Pacific), The International Department of the Temple Institute will be hosting our Third Annual International Temple Mount Awareness Day Online Six Hour Streaming Video Happening! We will be speaking with prominent guests from the world of Temple Mount activism, archaeology and the renewal of Holy Temple oriented commandments. We hope you will join us!
