Parashat Shelach:
Numbers chapters 13:1 – 15:41; Haftara: Joshua 2:1-24

Video Commentary by Rabbi Chaim Richman, The Temple Institute, Jerusalem:

“Twelve righteous men are sent to “spy” on the land of Israel. Ten return with an evil report, slandering the land of Israel. What went wrong? Narrow and short-sighted self-interest? Or was there a fundamental misunderstanding of Torah and G-d’s expectations of man in this world? Our generation today has been granted by G-d the opportunity to repair the devastating damage of the evil report and bring His light into the world”:

Shabbat Shalom

Since my secession from the Church in 2009, my Jewish Orthodox friends in Israel and I have been following the Fake News of Rome in articles and political Shabbat commentaries on GSI (God's Sabbath Int.). The former Pontiff destroyed the dwelling place of God, the temple in Jerusalem – fact! Was the New Testament and the Church just a world dominance inspired business idea of Rome? What is politics today? Enjoy your trip on GSI.
