      "Who inspired the one from east?" asks the prophet Isaiah rhetorically in this week's haftorah reading. He is referring, of course, to our patriarch Abraham, the first of the true believers and the "friend of G-d," who literally bursts upon the world scene in this week's Torah portion of Lech Lecha. This week's Temple Talk focuses on the unique mission of Abraham, the first Jew, who bequeathed a legacy of counter-culture activism and spiritual revolution to his descendants, and taught the world that Hashem is One. Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman also discuss the significance of the 6th day of MarCheshvan, this week's 848th anniversary of the famed Rambam's historic, life-threatening ascent to the Temple Mount. Just who was Maimonides and why did he risk his life to travel to Jerusalem and visit the Temple Mount? Why did he take measures to insure that his descendants observe this day, till the end of time? Tune into a fascinating, inspirational and educational edition of Temple Talk!
