Continuity: Parshat Pinchas


Continuity – That’s the concept that is embodied in multiple levels in the Torah reading of Pinchas. The experience of Israel in the desert is coming to a close, but the desecration of Zimri and Cozbi  threatens everything, Pinchas’ swift and certain response guarantees the continuity the sanctity of Israel. The daughters of Tzelaphchad and the designation of Yehoshua to succeed Moshe as leader of Israel naturally follow Pinchas’ heroic act. The parasha concludes with a description of the Tamid offering, the sanctification of continuity itself, in the service of the Holy Temple.  Shabbat Shalom.

We’ve completed Rosh Hashanah. We survived Yom Kippur. We enjoyed Sukkot. We celebrated Simchat Torah… What’s next? Chanukah!

A dinosaur's footprint found in Jerusalem

As this week’s Parsha is Breishit (Genesis), we thought it would be interesting to run one of Rabbi Natan Slifkin’s talks on Torah, Creation… and Dinosaurs. The photo above is from the site AllAboutJerusalem.com and the article there talks about the dinosaur footprints that were found in Beit Zayit in Jerusalem.


Yishai debates a cynical friend about the Jewish State, talks about the lack of Sukkot in the Hague, and broadcasts from the Moshav Carlebach Music Festival.

Yishai is joined by Renowned Israeli cantor Binyamin Nakonechny and Malkah Fleisher in-studio with special Sukkot songs and stories. Listen in and get inspired!

Jeremy Gimpel sent us this amazing Sukkot related video linking the ancient with the modern…

Yishai presents a special Sukkot show directly from Jerusalem!

Yishai Fleisher talks to Zvika Klein, award-winning journalist covering the Diaspora beat for Makor Rishon and NRG, about the shocking reality of Jews living in refugee camps in Ukraine’s war zone. Also Gil Hoffman, VOI broadcaster and Chief Political Correspondent for the Jerusalem Post recounts the plight of another long-suffering Jew, Jonathan Pollard.

Remember when your parents told you to not play with your food? This takes on a whole new dimension when Gaza children celebrate the Eid holiday with their (slaughtered) cow.

This year, as Israel observes the traditional period of national mourning for the destruction of the Beis HaMikdash on Tisha B’Av, it has again been revealed that the Islamic Waqf is carrying out unsupervised work at the Temple Mount, potentially causing irrevocable damage to Judaism’s holiest site.

Richman-032312

The study of Jewish history teaches us that throughout the ages, numerous edicts and decrees have prevented the practice of Jewish traditions and religious observance. Yet it has gone almost completely unnoticed that in recent weeks, Jewish rights and freedoms in the Land of Israel, of all places, have once again come under attack.
