Korach and his revolution figure prominently in this week's edition of Temple Talk. Just what was this demagogue's problem? It seems he decided that the Universe is just not big enough for him and G-d. There's a lot of that going around, but Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman have zero tolerance for the Korachs of our generation. You say you want a revolution? Well, you know…you better free your mind instead.

The month of Tammuz is just around the corner, and the New Moon will usher in the new month this coming Shabbat and Sunday. Yitzchak Reuven announces the Temple Institute's annual See and Say Only Good Things About the Land of Israel Month! It's our part to play in the living Torah…fixing the sin of the spies which tainted these days of Tammuz, and helping to turn days of baseless crying into days of joy and rebuilding.

This week at the Temple Institute:

WEEKLY TORAH PORTION: KORACH: Korach was a brilliant man of exceptional abilities. But his I, Me, Mine philosophy of life literally drove him from this world. In truth, we make room for ourselves in G-d's world by making room for others. This was the gift of Aharon, the High Priest. Korach's attempt to acquire for himself the priesthood was doomed from the start.
