      Audio: Parashat Bechukotei and Rabbi Akiva's Vision of Consolation

      The Word From G-d, and It's Not Politically Correct: Galut is Death, Period

      A7 Radio's "Temple Talk" with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven

      The Book of Leviticus concludes this week with parashat Bechukotei, a
      Torah portion that features beautiful words of idyllic blessing
      guaranteeing Israel's future when she but heeds her covenant with the
      Al-mighty. Conversely, harsh words of admonition describe the nation's
      fate if she turns her back on G-d and puts her faith in
      "happenstance;" that leads to exile, tantamount to death itself. But
      Whoa! Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman conclude that it is up to
      Israel to turn the woe into whoa! and simply get with the program, in
      tune with the flow of all creation. No wonder this Torah portion,
      which hinges upon our realization of G-d's hand upon us at all times
      and under all circumstances, leads us right up to the joyous
      celebration of Jerusalem Day, 5772, a day which reveals great Divine
      providence and G-d's protection, even as He brings us out of the exile
      and back home to the Land of Israel. This week's edition of Temple
      Talk is one for the Hall of Fame!

      Also this week from the TEMPLE INSTITUTE:

      WEEKLY TORAH PORTION:  BECHUKOTAI: From the opening "And He called" of
      the book of Leviticus to the closing words of this week's concluding
      reading, G-d has been direct, open and honest with Israel. He sets out
      His program for us and, in the end, it is up to us, and only up to us,
      to decide whether we are going to get on board, or not.

      A JERUSALEM DAY GREETING: The modern world knows no greater day than
      Yom Yerushalayim - Jerusalem Day. It's been a long time coming, but
      our prophets foresaw this great event thousands of years ago!

      COME:" From June 11th through June 20th, Rabbi Richman will be
      speaking in different cities throughout Texas and New Mexico. Click

      video for Rabbi Richman's upcoming tour!

      RETURN TO PROPHECY, with Rabbi Avraham Sutton: CHAPTER 25:  HIDDEN
      TEACHINGS OF THE GOOD LIGHT: The history of the world is the history
      of the progressive revelation of the inner, concealed truth of Torah.

      YOUTUBE! Part 4 of 7: "He's here tonight - give a big hand for Yehudah
      Katz and his four piece band!" When Yehudah and band joined us on
      Temple Mount Awareness Day, they were on holy fire providing for us an
      hour long "half-time" celebration of song and Temple insights. It's
      only fitting that we are first posting this performance on Lag B'Omer!
