On Temple Talk with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven, say good-bye to everything you've ever known, and step into a new dimension: the coming year of 5773, may it bring great blessing. Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman prepare to receive the new light in this Rosh Hashannah special edition of Temple Talk. First up: the special day of Elul 25, the first day of creation. How should we be spending that day? And why do we observe man's birthday, Rosh Hashannah, with the call of the shofar? It all goes back to the secret of the sound of the shofar and the breath of life. Man was the last thing to be created...way after the animals. We're not animals, you know...that's what Rosh Hashannah is all about. But way back in 1965, Eric Burdon and The Animals had a hit with "I'm Just a Soul Whose Intentions are Good; O L-rd, Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood." That's the secret of the sound of the shofar! I'm just a soul whose intentions are good! Hashem, please don't let me be misunderstood!Tune into Temple Talk for a Rosh Hashannah primer that will change your life and get you ready for the upcoming High Holy Days. To download the show click here.


On Ask the Rabbi with Rabbi Pinchas Winston, a discussion of the large amount of time one spends in synagogue during the High Holidays. Rabbi Winston explains now the time can be used to one's benefit if we know what our goals are and how to achieve them. Rosh Hashannah and Yom Kippur are meant to be a time to regain the proper focus and to return to what it truly means to be an "Adam," a being made in the image of G-d. Rabbi Winston explains how these concepts are the true path to personal freedom and growth. To download the show click here


On J Jam with Adam Mallerman, music for Rosh Hashannah. Ari Goldwag’s beautiful Aleinu, Shalsheles with the classic Esei Einei, some Blue Fringe, Dveykus, Aaron Razel and more for the High Holidays. To download the show click here


On Lazer Beams with Rabbi Lazer Brody, most people view the High Holidays as foreboding and heavy, with the ax of judgment hovering over their necks. The truth is that Rosh Hashannah and Yom Kippur are days of joy (see Nehemia, Chapter 8). Of course, it's frightening to stand in judgment before The King, but it's much different if The King is your Father in Heaven. This episode of Lazer Beams features the music of Beri Weber.

On the Derech Eretz Show with Rabbi Elan Adler, an interview with Lisa Ferentz, President and Founder of the Institute for Advanced Psychotherapy Training and Education and author of "Treating Self-Destructive Behaviors in Trauma Survivors: A Clinicians Guide." She joins Rabbi Adler to talk about the pull of Rosh Hashannah and the call to make changes and improve our behavior and relationships. What distracts us from being the nicest people we can be? Is it easier to make substantive changes in our character today than it was years ago? What do we know about doing good and feeling good? How can we override some of the negative voices that raised us as children and become adults who care about others with compassion and empathy?  To download the show click here.
