In an unprecedented episode of Temple Talk dedicated to the sanctity of time and the dynamics of Redemption, Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman deliver a passionate lesson about the Counting of the Omer, the month of Iyar and the State of Israel. This sprawling panorama of Jewish history spans from the building of the First Temple which King Solomon began during this very month, up to our very day...with the establishment of the State of Israel and the reunification of Jerusalem as the living proof of the healing power of the month of Iyar.

This Week at the Temple Institute: Weekly Torah Portion: Tazria-Metzora : Try imagining a world where every word counts, where every thought and intention counts. This is the very world that G-d created and intended for His children to sanctify. This is the world described in Tazria-Metzora. It is a world that we can and should aspire to.
