The Cult of Death vs. the Celebration of Life

reposted from Arutz 7
8/16/2012, Av 28, 5772

The Torah exhorts us to 'see' the difference between a life of blessing or conversely, that of curse. The choice, as usual, is ours.

The last edition of the Temple Talk podcast for this closing month of Menachem Av focuses on the confluence of the headlines with the themes of this week's Torah portion, parashat Re'eh. The Torah exhorts us to 'see' the difference between a life of blessing or conversely, that of curse. The choice, as usual, is ours...and we also choose our fate: how we succeed both as individuals and as a nation, how the other nations perceive us, whether or not we will be going to war - all is connected to the introduction we receive in this week's parasha to "the Place that I will Choose." Show hosts Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Chaim Richman of the Temple Institute, together with all of Am Yisrael, also choose that place. Unfortunately, not only are Jews disallowed from praying there for fear of inciting the Muslims - but now even the immortal, historic words "The Temple Mount is in Our Hands" have been deemed illegal! Which way are we heading? Only the coming month of Elul, the special time of spiritual reckoning and re-calibration, knows for sure...
