Yom Kippur Sermons

Here are links to my Yom Kippur sermons. On Kol Nidre I spoke about why the Temple was built where it was in Jerusalem. Two stories from the Bible present different accounts of sanctity - either through personal faith or through community. Faith and community together define us as Jews. At yizkor I spoke about what has enabled Shaare Tefila Congregation to survive its transition and what it needs to do to succeed in the future. Memory, leadership, and communal support are the essential factors.
