This week's Torah portion of parashat Pinchas begins with an act of zealotry, of righteous indignation, which earned Pinchas a unique 'eternal priesthood' – and a covenant of peace.
What does he have in common with the righteous daughters of Tzelafchad, five women whose love of the Land of Israel and zeal for their father's honor powered them to change the face of Jewish law, and receive a personal approbation from the Almighty?
Join Yitchak Reuven and Rabbi Chaim Richman for this week's edition of Temple Talk, as they fit these parasha puzzle pieces together – on the backdrop of the annual Three Weeks of mourning for the Holy Temple.
And speaking of mourning for the Holy Temple…the Temple Institute teaches that this process of mourning should bring us to a greater awareness of the need to start rebuilding.
Stay tuned to an amazing announcement the Temple Institute will be making on Sunday, July 12th…something that will bring Israel and the world another step closer.
