A7 Radio's "Temple Talk" with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven
Follow Israel Radio on
Temple Talk is back! After a break of several weeks, Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman join together again in Jerusalem in a brand-new, fast-moving, evocative and passion-filled episode of Temple Talk. Our hosts reflect on their experiences earlier this month at the Temple Institute's 25th Anniversary Gala held in Dallas, TX, and review recent events in Israel and abroad through the prism of the current Torah readings. Connecting the dots, Yitzchak and the Rabbi move deftly between Yaakov's confrontations with Eisav, Operation Pillar of Defense, recent United Nations obscenities and as usual, the vilification of Israel at the hands of the nations. Just as Yosef had to descend to Egypt to prepare for something big, it's all part of the plan of Redemption!
This week from the Temple Institute:
A QUARTER CENTURY OF ACCOMPLISHMENTS: The culmination of many months of intensive efforts, the December 14th (Rosh Chodesh Kislev) Temple Institute's 25th Anniversary Gala Celebration, was a monumental and most gratifying success. The joyous occasion marked 25 years of trailblazing accomplishments by the Temple Institute and also served as an opportunity to honor and give thanks to our dedicated and selfless friends, supporters, and all those who believe in the importance of the rebuilding of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, speedily, and in our days. We would also like to express our deep appreciation and gratitude toward all those who worked ceaselessly and without rest to help make the evening the unqualified success that it was. This video retrospective was premiered at the gala.
25TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION: A BLESSING BY RAV YISRAEL ARIEL: Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, the founder and head of the Temple Institute, recorded this warm blessing to be heard at the occasion of the Temple Institute's 25th Anniversary Gala Dinner, which took place in Dallas, Texas, on December 14th, 2012. Rav Ariel expressed his deep gratitude toward HaShem and his thanks to the people gathered at the dinner, and to all the Institute's friends and supporters, who in his words, don't simply pray for or dream about or even sing songs about the Holy Temple, but actually make real efforts toward the rebuilding of the Holy Temple. "May we all merit to speedily see the great and holy Sanctuary established, with the Divine Presence dwelling within it."
TEMPLE INSTITUTE KEYNOTE SPEAKER: THE HON. MOSHE FEIGLIN: On December 14th (Rosh Chodesh Kislev) the Temple Institute held a Gala 25th Anniversary Dinner, celebrating twenty five years of the Temple Institute and honoring our dedicated friends and supporters. The honorable Moshe Feiglin, founder and head of Manhigut Yehudit, the Jewish Leadership Faction of the Likud party, was the Dinner's Keynote Speaker. Unable, at the last minute, to attend in person, due to party primaries in anticipation of Israel's upcoming parliamentary elections, Moshe delivered his heartfelt message by video.
Subsequent to the Institute's Gala Dinner, Moshe made a very strong showing in the Likud primaries, and is expected to become a member of the Israel Knesset in the upcoming February elections.The Temple Institute congratulates Moshe on his hard earned success and looks forward to his continuing to articulate and implement the principles he set out in his keynote address as a member of the upcoming national government!
