Passover, the glorious festival of freedom, is preceded by another holy day, a day of preparation and portent: the tenth day of Nisan. In this week's special kosher for Passover edition of Temple Talk, Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman make the connection between what happened on the tenth of Nisan, and our modern-day observance of Passover. Even as all of Israel prepares for a glorious and fulfilling holiday, the timing of President Obama's visit to Jerusalem (not to mention the purpose of his trip) carries deep spiritual significance -- and challenges. Tune into this Passover primer as our hosts continue to campaign for the renewal of the Passover offering and the realignment of Israel's hearts and minds with our true national identity. We wish all of our listeners a joyous and kosher Passover...this year, today, in Jerusalem!

This week at the Temple Institute:
WEEKLY TORAH PORTION: TZAV: The timeless beauty of the korban - offering - is to draw the man -the adam - the G-dly image implanted within each and every on of us, closer to our Creator. Much misunderstood, the korban sensitizes and enhances our humanity and deepen our understanding of where we fit in the grand scheme of things which is G-d's plan for His creation.
PASSOVER ADVENTURE: You are about to read the extraordinary story of an extraordinary boy, named Shlomo Ben Ezra. Shlomo lived in a quiet Galilee village called Tsippori, 1945 years ago, in the year 60CE! In that year, Shlomo, along with his Saba and Savta, (grandparents), Ima and Aba, (mother and father), and his sister Miriam, made the pilgrimage from Tsippori to the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, in order to celebrate the Passover festival - the festival of freedom! Terat yourself to a Passover adventure!
