!Short Clips! Bechukosai – Together | Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky

Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky – Shares about the blessing in this recent weekly Torah portion (Bechukosai) of the ability of the Jews to increase the ratio of our effectiveness against our enemies. From 5 to 100 to 100 to 10,000. The Rabbi explains that this means going from 20% effective to 100% effective. How can we achieve this? By helping and bringing along our fellow Jews to join us in our journey we add to our individual and collective effectiveness against our enemies and towards our wholeness.

!Shabbat Shalom! The Three Pillars – Vayakhel (Rabbi Dovid Kaplan) (Weekly Parsha)

Rabbi David Kaplan – Three sins are sourced in the original sin of Adam and Eve – Desire, Jealousy, and Kavod. These three show themselves both to repeat and to repent/tikun (fix) from throughout Jewish history. During the time of the flood of Noah and the tower of Babel they repeat. During the time of the three Avot (Avraham, Yitzhak, and Yaakov) and the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai they fix. This weeks parasha reveals the parts for the construction of the Mishkan (the Temple in desert) which fixes by manifesting the parts (the physical) into and representing the spiritual. This fixes and helps bring tikun to fix those three sins that make up the original sin of Man. Shabbat Shalom!

!Short Clips! Living With The Times – Secrets of the Menorah and The Relevance of the Temple in Jerusalem

Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman – Shares the secrets of the Menorah in the Temple and how it parallels many things in Jewish life including the human body itself. It serves as a Jewish symbol – physically and spiritually. Ultimately the light from Menorah is the Jewish people’s light to the World.

Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman – Shares how the Synagogue today is a replication of the Temple and how all the items in the Synagogue are situated to parallel how the items in the Temple were. Additionally, the prayer service of today also parallels the services in the Temple (including the Korbanot (sacrifices), the songs the Leviim sang (Tehillim – Psalms), and the Kohen service).

Bitter People – Beshalach (Rabbi Dovid Kaplan) (Weekly Parsha)

Rabbi David Kaplan – Shares about the most recent weekly parsha (Beshalach) and what happened after the Sea split. The Jews complained that there was no potable water – that the water was bitter. Rabbi Kaplan points out that it wasn’t the water that was bitter but that the People were bitter because Moshe dragged them away from collecting more riches from the dead Egyptians. We conclude from this that it usually isn’t the “bad” situations that are bitter in our life but our perspective is bitter. An attitude of gratitude is the solution to our bitterness.

!Short Clips! Living With The Times – Current Situation in Israel – An Archetypal Struggle

Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman – The struggle between Yaakov and Esav in this week’s upcoming parasha (Vayishlach) is a struggle that has been going on throughout the ages including now in recent times. Rabbi Trugman explains the very interesting gematria that Yaakov + Satan = Yisroel. Yaakov (Jacob) plus the Satan (the guardian angel of Esav that Yaakov wrestled with) equals Yisroel (the name the angel in this wrestling event that Yaakov won and subsequently the name Hashem gave later on in the narrative).
