New Beginnings: This week Israel begins to read the fourth book of Torah, Bamidbar, the book of Numbers which tells the story of the generation of the desert…the generation that received the Torah at Mount Sinai.
This week we also began the new month of Sivan, and in just a few days we will be observing the Festival of Shavuot.
Shavuot is the culmination of our seven week counting of the Omer…the anniversary of the Sinai Revelation, the giving of the Torah, marked by the bringing of first fruits to the Holy Temple.
This week's passionate edition of Temple Talk focuses on Shavuot and the significance of our generation receiving the Torah anew. What will it take for us to make our acquisition of Torah real? What will it take for us to stem and cauterize the tide of anarchy on the holy Temple Mount? Join Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman as they connect the dots between the deteriorating situation on the Temple Mount, the Holy Temple, and Shavuot…and our own children, the generation that will truly receive the Torah at Sinai and rebuild the Holy Temple.
