A7 Radio's "Temple Talk" with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven
Follow Israel Radio on
The book of Exodus comes to a magnificent close this week, as we read the twin Torah portions of Vayakhel-Pekudei, which deals with the details and summary of the Tabernacle's construction. But there is a lot more to this seemingly "repetitious" redaction than meets the eye. In this week's dazzling edition of Temple Talk, Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman find new meaning for our generation in the completion of the Tabernacle and its dedication on Rosh Chodesh Nisan, which takes place next week. Our hosts find outstanding truths and challenges in the account of the desert tabernacle, and hold up these two Torah portions as a beacon to illuminate our nation's way through the stagnant mire of our current global geopolitical "realities."
The Temple Mount is in the news, as new MK Moshe Feiglin pushes the envelope of Israeli sovereignty to very door of the Dome of the Rock... only to have it "returned to sender." Tune into a controversial and dynamic Temple Talk that examines contemporary "Jewish" values and comfort zones with no holds barred.
This week at the Temple Institute:
WEEKLY TORAH PORTION: VAYAKHEL-PEKUDEI: "Generous hearted, wise hearted, uplifted heart, inspired heart... " The building of the Tabernacle is the work of the heart of an entire people to create a heart for the nation, a heart for all mankind, and a heart for the world. Now space, like time (Shabbat), is sanctified, and G-d's creation is complete.
