In the midst of the heat of the month of Menachem Av, as the solemn day of Tisha B'Av draws near, this week we begin to read the book of Devarim. Moshe Rabbeinu gathers the entire nation of Israel and begins to review the entire Torah for them, a task that will take up the last 5 weeks of his life. But he begins his words in this week's Torah portion with a "coded" rebuke. Why the code? Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman discuss the concept of rebuke and how it might be applied to our generation on this week's Temple Talk. This Shabbat is also called "The Sabbath of Vision," since everyone receives a "vision" of the rebuilt Holy Temple. But can we see clearly, or does smoke get in our eyes? This program also features an extensive, behind-the-scenes look at the production of the Temple Institute's new video, "Tisha B'Av 2013: The Children are Ready II." This week's edition of Temple Talk is an experience you will not want to miss!

This week at the Temple Institute:

TISHA B'AV 2013: THE CHILDREN ARE READY II: On Tisha B'Av, the Jewish people mourn the destruction of the Holy Temple. Seated on the floor as mourners, the adults in the synagogue recite the traditional kinnot dirges. But is the goal simply the continuation of the mourning, for the sake of mourning? The children have a different idea of what needs to be done...

WEEKLY TORAH PORTION: DEVARIM: Moshe, in his farewell address to Israel which comprises the entirety of the book of Deuteronomy, opens with words of rebuke. Determined to instruct and not to hurt his beloved people, Moshe "sweetens" his words of reproach with love and tenderness. As we approach the fateful 9th of Av we are sorely in need of sweet reproof as the call for us to rise up and rebuild the Holy Temple is greater now than ever.

150 JEWISH CHILDREN BRING JOY AND HOPE TO THE TEMPLE MOUNT: Are we witnessing a "Children Are Ready" effect? On Rosh Chodesh Menachem Av, (July 8th), hundreds of Jews made a pilgrimage to the Temple Mount, (in strict accordance with halacha), in order to commemorate the new month of Av. Among the many Jews who ascended the Mount was a group of 150 Jewish children, boys and girls of all ages. Their unprecedented visit was organized by The Association of Temple Organizations, coordinated in advance with the police. Complete story and pictures:

ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT, WEDNESDAY, 3 AV 5773 (JULY 10 2013) Rabbi Chaim Richman helped to guide a large ascent to the Temple Mount. 54 dedicated Jewish men, women and children of all ages, the majority from communities in the Hebron hills area, participated in this beautiful experience. The visitors enjoyed moments of quite clandestine prayer and heard inspirational words of Torah. Their steps were dogged by Muslim Wakf personnel who brazenly filmed their every move.
