In this week's Torah portion of Ki Tisa, we read about the cataclysmic
debacle of the Golden Calf: While still standing at the foot of Mount
Sinai, Israel is hoodwinked by the nefarious Mixed Multitude, and
under their influence, the nation blunders. This week's powerful,
unsettling edition of Temple Talk finds Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi
Richman discovering that the nation of Israel is still grappling with
the ominous echoes, overtones and results of the Golden Calf even
today. It's not just a question of bowing down to a's about
disguising and misrepresenting our values. Today's modern mixed
multitude, princes of hypocrisy, continue to dictate Israel's moral
code, and sell her the Brooklyn Bridge...while selling her down the
river. Warning: This show is politically incorrect!

This week at the Temple Institute:


TEMPLE -READY VESSELS: In honor of the Torah portions focusing on the
Tabernacle which are currently being read and studied by the people of
Israel, we present a window into the work of the Temple Institute,
showcasing the restoration of the Temple vessels, all kosher for use
in the soon to be rebuilt Third Temple, made according to the exact
requirements and specifications of Biblical law.
