NEW! The Jerusalem Lights Weekly Podcast is Now Available on ITunes!
Now Playing: Jerusalem Lights Podcast Episode #25:
Parashat Va'Etchanan and the Holy Temple -
Changing the Narrative of the Tisha B'Av Experience
What Will You Be Doing on Tisha B’Av?
The Relevance of the Holy Temple Today –
And the Temple Mount Revolution
This week’s Torah portion of Va’Etchanan, with its emphasis on love of G-d and the Land of Israel, opens with a subtle allusion to the Holy Temple. The observance of the fast day of Tisha B’Av this week (July 30) will mark 1951 years since the destruction of the Holy Temple. What relevance does the distant memory of the Holy Temple have for our modern world today? Should we be mourning the past, or preparing for the future? Tisha B’Av means different things to different people…what does it mean to you? In this week’s episode of the Jerusalem Lights podcast, our hosts discuss the significance of the Holy Temple for all people, and the promise of hope that it brings to humanity. Jim Long and Rabbi Chaim Richman share an inspiring, exciting update of the new reality on the Temple Mount, heralding the beginning of a new era for Israel and the world.
From Arkansas to Jerusalem with ‘Jerusalem Lights’
Tune in to Rabbi Chaim Richman’s new weekly podcast, ‘Jerusalem Lights,’ with Co-Host, noted Noahide lecturer, author, and film-maker Jim Long!
‘Jerusalem Lights’ is about the universality of the eternal Torah and its accessibility and vital connection to every individual, regardless of background or nationality. The goal of ‘Jerusalem Lights’ is to provide authentic Torah knowledge to all those who have a sincere spiritual hunger, exploring the reciprocal relationship between Israel and the Nations and providing greatest access possible to universal Torah… Torah for everyone. That's exactly what happens as Rabbi Chaim Richman of Jerusalem teams up with Jim Long of Arkansas, lecturer, documentary film maker, dedicated Noahide, and student of the spiritual trailblazer Vendyl Jones. Rabbi Richman frames the Torah’s lessons in the context of current world events and the political reality, emphasizing the contemporary challenges and personal implications for every person. Jim Long’s views and ideas, culled from his extensive experience and remarkable knowledge as a non-Jew who loves the Torah, are powerful and dynamic. ‘Jerusalem Lights’ will speak to countless seekers of truth everywhere whose questions have waited for answers.
