Shabbos is coming! Shlomo Katz is coming! The 2nd Annual International Temple Mount Awareness Day is coming!

Shabbos is coming, the end of what has been a very intense week here in Jerusalem. Oy, do we need Shabbos this week - like, we need it EVERY week, but sometimes we need it MORE, and this is one of those weeks. 

We like to say: "Shabbos fixes everything." May whatever is broken be fixed, along with our hearts that ache over the loss of life and tragic events not only of this week - we're referring to the bomb attack at a Jerusalem bus stop earlier this week - but in weeks past ... Japan, Itamar, so many people in so much pain...

And yet, and yet. And yet we are told to rejoice, to remember that the essence of our faith is belief in the goodness of G*d, to recall His mercies which are new every morning - you know, the prophet Jeremiah wrote that verse which appears in the Book of Lamentations when the Children of Israel were being led away to Babylon! How could Jeremiah at the lowest point in the life of our Nation - the eve of the Babylonian Exile, the destruction of the First Temple - write those words?

"HaShem's kindness surely has not ended, nor are His mercies exhausted, they are new every morning;  great is Your faithfulness! 'HaShem is my portion,' says my soul, 'therefore I have hope in Him.' HaShem is good to those who trust in Him, to the soul that seeks Him." 
- Eicha (Lamentations) 3:22-25

We trust and hope in the mercies of HKBH. That's all we can do - and bring you great music, talk & Torah, 24/6 from Jerusalem to the World.

To help refocus us on faith and joy, we bring you the Cohen Gadol of the Carlebachian branch of Jewish music - SHLOMO KATZ! SHLOMO KATZ! SHLOMO KATZ IS COMING TO RADIO FREE NACHLAOT! "Sunday Night Live" March 27th at 8pm Jerusalem time - "Watch us on the Radio" - you'll be able to see and hear Shlomo Katz perform LIVE - thanks to our friends at BE THERE ISRAEL Live Streaming Video.


Not only is the "Cohen Gadol" of music coming to us - but on April 5th (Rosh Chodesh Nissan) we're bringing the 2nd Annual Temple Mount Awareness Day event to the whole world on live streaming video radio - from 2pm to 8pm Jerusalem time, we'll be bringing you original compelling live programming ALL ABOUT THE HOLY TEMPLE featuring our special guests Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven of the Temple Institute's International Department.

The Holy Temple - Har HaBayet, the Temple Mount - is the focus of the show, and how appropriate to focus on the things of the Holy Temple on Rosh Chodesh Nissan as it was on that day that Moses erected the Tabernacle, the day the Divine Service began, the day that 10 crowns descended upon Israel, the day that G-d's Presence rested on Earth, the day that Israel's offerings were accepted by Heaven!
Rabbi Chaim Richman is the Director of the Temple Institute's International Department and the world's leading English-language expert on the Holy Temple. He will be sharing special Torah teachings all about the Temple's building, service, history, dimensions, inner meanings, past and future!
We'll learn about how the Temple was and will be "A HOUSE OF PRAYER FOR ALL PEOPLE," about the current political situation that keeps the Temple Mount nearly inaccessible to religious Jews, and about the halachic restrictions and requirements for those who want to ascend to the Temple Mount in the required state of ritual purity.
Join us as we welcome Rabbi Richman, Yitzchak Reuven and special guests who will teach all about -
Archeology of the Holy Temple
Clothing of the Priests of the Holy Temple
Music of the Holy Temple
... and more!
 We have so much to share about this program, you're going to be hearing a LOT about it in the coming week - but please note YOU CAN BE A PART OF THIS SPECIAL PROGRAM IN MANY WAYS INCLUDING SPONSORING THE SHOW! CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT SPONSORING THE PROGRAM!
For now - good Shabbos, good Shabbos, may we all have a sweet and peaceful Shabbos wherever we are and whomever we are - we'll be back Moetzi Shabbos with our Melava Malka, and then Sunday Night Live with Shlomo Katz - "WATCH US ON THE RADIO!"
