“The world stands on three things: Torah, the service of G-d, and deeds of kindness.” (Ethics of the Fathers 1:2)
“He called to Moshe, and HaShem spoke to him from the Tent of Meeting, saying, ‘Speak to the Children of Israel and say to them: when a man among you brings an offering to HaShem… ”
The korbanot (offerings) that are brought in the Holy Temple are a vastly complex and intricate Divine system that challenges man to rise above his own base animal nature and to strive to be the best human being that he or she can be. The Temple offerings is perhaps the most misunderstood of all Temple-related subjects. Why? What purpose did the offerings serve, and will they be renewed again one day?
More than 150 people attended the West Texas Holy Temple Conference in Lubbock, Texas, November 9-12, 2017. Sponsored by the South Plains Hebraic Center, in cooperation with Biblical Faith of Abilene, Texas, and the Temple Institute, Inc., of Lubbock, Texas, the conference brought together people from across the United States and Canada.
Representatives from the Temple Institute of Israel, including Rabbi Chaim Richman, Rena Richman, and Yitzchak Reuven, were joined by archaeologist Hillel Richman. Each presented multiple teachings to the gathering.
The eight teachings were all beautifully filmed and edited by Jim Long. We thank Jim for the long hours and dedication he put into preparing these videos for all to see.
The focus of the teachings was on the spiritual significance of the Holy Temple, the concept of sacred space, the significance and meaning of the korbonot (the Temple offerings), the foundation stone, the ark of the covenant, the stone altar, and prayer at the Holy Temple, bringing the service and significance of the Holy Temple alive. Archaeologist Hillel Richman focused on the archaeological discoveries made in recent years in Jerusalem concerning the Temple Mount, and on the rich treasures of archaeological evidence of the first and second Holy Temples.
