The month of Elul has arrived and the shofar is sounded on Temple
Talk, signaling the time of repentance, introspection and preparation
for the "reckoning and accounting" that we will be giving very
shortly... In the meantime, the King is in the Field and it's time to
get real. In this week's edition of Temple Talk, Yitzchak Reuven and
Rabbi Richman talk about getting real on the individual, national and
global level... from the courageous and dedicated Israeli youth who
organized a protest this past week against ongoing Islamic desecration
of the Temple Mount, to the issue on the tip of everyone's tongue: the
dance currently being performed by Israel and Iran. Inspired by the
call of Elul, Rabbi Richman sends special warm and personal regards to
Iranian President Ahmadinejad!

WEEKLY TORAH PORTION: SHOFTIM: As Moses continues to flesh out G-d's
plan for a Torah based society in the land of Israel, one thing
becomes crystal clear: The Holy Temple from which shines forth the
Divine presence, (Shechina), is the light and the source of justice -
how we treat our fellow man, and worship - how we stand before G-d. We
cannot achieve justice between men if we do not stand before G-d, and
we cannot stand before G-d if we do not seek justice between men.

second day of the month of Elul, a passionate group of Bnei Akiva
youth gathered together on Jerusalem's Haas Promenade overlooking the
Temple Mount in order to protest the Moslem Wakf's continued attempts
to demean and destroy remnants of the Holy Temple and even the Temple
Mount itself, as well as official Israel's continued policy preventing
Jews from worshiping freely on the Temple Mount. For the complete
story and photographs:

month of Elul, last month of the Hebrew calendar year, is an
auspicious time for repentance, prayer and introspection. These are
special days of Divine good will and mercy, and the very essence of
these days bespeak the basic human need for closeness with the Holy
One, blessed be He... and His immediate and unequivocal response. To
