      A7 Radio's "Temple Talk" with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven

      In Parashat Pekudei, with its detailed reckonings of the final details of the tabernacle's construction, the Torah testifies to a new reality which will be the focus of Jewish purpose and consciousness from this point onward. But as our hosts report this week, that reality has been replaced by an alternative reality - one based on lies, distortion and denial. This Shabbat is also Shabbat Shekalim, one of the four special Torah readings which precede the festival of Passover. Shabbat Shekalim is all about the preparations which the Jewish people begin during the month of Adar for the upcoming Passover pilgrimage to the Holy Temple. But in the twisted, mirror-image world of the Temple Mount today, Jewish people are treated as criminals and prevented from uttering a single word of prayer... as witnessed this past week by two great friends of Israel, Congressmen Bill Johnson (R OH) and Congressman David McKinley (R WV). Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Chaim Richman had the honor of guiding these gentlemen on a fact-finding tour of the Temple Mount, where the American lawmakers, "guilty by association," were "treated like Jews" and were able to witness firsthand the Wakf's criminal persecution of Jewish worshipers. Who is to blame for this sordid state of affairs? The Jordanian-backed Wakf, a hostile, illegal group within the sovereign State of Israel? The Israel Police? Our own Prime Minister? These questions and more are scheduled to be clarified in a special, historic Knesset meeting which will discuss the issue of official Israeli sovereignty on the holy Mount. Hear all about these crucial developments on this week's compelling edition of Temple Talk.

      This week at the Temple Institute:

      WEEKLY TORAH PORTION: PEKUDEI: Welcoming G-d into our neighborhood and
      making this world a better place - this is the simple yet profound
      reason Israel has been commanded to build for G-d a Sanctuary on this
      earth. Israel is a nation whose destiny is to live and act in G-d
      consciousness, thereby uplifting man and perfecting G-d's creation.

      pages are incontrovertible evidence that the rock and fire-bomb
      throwing riot this morning was not only planned well in advance, but
      completely preventable, if only the Israeli police cared to prevent
      it. Read more and see pictures!

      International Director of the Temple Institute, points out that
      today's riots on the Temple Mount are in direct response to the
      historic discussion regarding Israeli sovereignty on the Temple Mount
      which is scheduled to take place in the Knesset Tuesday. This is the
      first Knesset hearing regarding the status of the Temple Mount since
      its liberation in the 1967 Six-Day War. Raed full statement.

      Early Sunday morning, Congressmen Bill Johnson (R-OH) and David
      McKinley (R-WV) joined Rabbi Chaim Richman, International Director of
      the Temple Institute, on a fact-finding mission of the Temple Mount.
      The visit was an opportunity for the American elected officials to
      witness the plight of Jews that are banned from praying in their
      holiest site. As they had joined a group of Jewish visitors, they
      underwent all of the excessive and invasive security checks that are
      only given to Jews, including thorough searches for any non- Muslim
      religious articles. Read more and see pictures.

      MOSHE FEIGLIN RETURNS TO THE TEMPLE MOUNT: After nearly one year of
      being barred from the Temple Mount by direct order of Prime Minister
      Binyamin Netanyahu, Knesset member and Deputy Speaker Moshe Feiglin
      returned this Wednesday to the Temple Mount. He ascended on the 19th
      day of the month of Adar, renewing a personal tradition of ascending
      the Temple Mount on the 19th of every Hebrew month.

      5774 (Sunday Feb. 23), Rabbi Chaim Richman was pleased to host Rabbi
      Yekutiel Alperowitz and family for a visit to the Temple Institute's
      Holy Temple Visitors Center. Rabbi Alperowitz, a long time friend of
      the Temple Institute, is rabbi of the Chabad Lubavitch Synagogue of
      Cape Cod, located in Hyannis, MA. Rabbi Richman has visited the
      Hyannis congregation on several occasions, and a warm bond exists
      between this community and the Institute.

      Rabbi Chaim Richman is the international director of the Temple Institute in Jerusalem which is dedicated to rebuilding the Holy Temple (Beit HaMikdash). He is a member of the current effort to revive the Sanhedrin and the author of ten books including Mystery of the Red Heifer and A House of Prayer for All Nations. Yitzchak Reuven works at the Temple Institute in Jerusalem. He previously worked building Biblical harps and other musical instruments for use in the Holy Temple. He and Rabbi Chaim Richman have been friends since their Israeli army days. They host the Temple Talk podcast dealing with issues of the Temple Mount and the weekly Torah parsha every Tuesday from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Israel time (11 a.m. U.S. EST) on Israel National Radio.
