Talking Torah Round Table


The Round Table is a Talking Torah feature where we discuss Torah ideas with respected teachers in our community.  Each week we post discussions ranging from the weekly readings to  topical discussions such as on the topic of Oral Torah.  Very detailed and lively discussions. Recordings include Ira Michaelson, Rod Bryant, Yoel Halevi, Jodell Onstott, and others.

Talking Torah Round Table| The Oral Torah part 2

Shalom, today Yoel and I discuss the second temple period and begin to discuss the levels of disharmony that prevailed during the prophet Jeremaiah’s time until the Hasmonian period. We close with the beginning of the discussion on the canonization of the “Tanakh”. And which books were considered “proper” for daily study before Jeremaiah’s time.

Talking Torah Round Table| The Oral Torah, Truth and Tradition

Today Yoel and I begin a new cycle of format for the teaching discussions. After two years of the Torah Cycle we have ended the weekly recordings of the Torah Portions and have begun a new cycle of Topical discussions. This first topic, which will last over several discussions, is on the subject of the Oral Torah. During the discussion we bring out that there is an Oral Torah from Moses. The discussion opens up the history of the Oral Torah that is in use today and how it is similar or different from the Oral Torah of Moses.

We are also beginning an active call for you all to bring your questions on this and other topics to us so that we can plan and prepare for more than just a cursory overview of your questions. So, send those questions and comment directly to me at Jeff@talkingTorah.org and I will begin a list. The list will be held on TalkingTorah.org and will be able to be interactive.

Thanks for all who have been with us on the Round Table over the years and for those who will help us to continue to serve the people of God’s Covenant of Israel for years to come.

Talking Torah Round Table| Hosea, the Final Chapter

Posted by on Jul 7, 2015 in Podcasts, Talking Torah Podcasts, Talking Torah Round Table, The prophetic life of Hosea | 0 comments

Today we close out Hosea. The prophet to Israel who told us that God was setting us aside. He began with the judgement “Not My People” and ends with the promise.. That all who Return to Him, He will return to His Covenant. We also spend a lot of time discussing our current status in God’s eyes. And Two primary questions for Israel in our days.. Those who desire to Join with God, do so the “Same way they have always done it, At the mountain” And for those who have done something to be cut off from God’s covenant, Return. No board of elders, no judgement of a court of law. There is one law, for all Israel and all who join with Israel. One way into the same covenant. And One way back to the same covenant.  This is a VERY important discussion for our day.
