Torah Talk

Shanah Tovah!
Thank you, Suburban Temple-Kol Ami, for a beautiful, meaningful Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur!
This week’s Torah portion, Ha’azinu, is a poem towards the end of Deuteronomy. In the poem, Moses asks the people of Israel to continue to listen and learn to God, and the messages of Judaism.  Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur provide ample opportunity for introspection and growth.
The festival season is not complete; from the seriousness of Yom Kippur we emerge in happiness to Sukkot and Simchat Torah. We look forward to our pre-Sukkot celebration from 12-2 on Sunday, September 23, and our Sukkot consecration on Friday night, September 28, during our Shabbat worship at 6pm. Our holiday season concludes with Simchat Torah on Sunday, September 30. Beginning with (free) dinner at 6pm, we end with joyous celebration with song, community, and even a hora!
All of my High Holy day sermons are linked here and are available on our website.
Shabbat Shalom and Shanah Tovah!
