  1. Shavuot DT SCR

    Revelation is a tricky thing. For Moses it took place at age 80 while standing in front of a burning bush. For Abraham it was in Haran at age 75 when he heard the voice of God telling him to take a different path from his ancestors and become a blessing to all the families of the world.

  2. Ruth and Lovingkindess Teaching Session Gedzelman

    As we look forward to reading the Book of Ruth on the holiday of Shavuot, Rabbi David Gedzelman explores the text with an eye towards literary elements which speak of how the Hebrew Bible pushes forward structures of covenantal openness, societal protection and compassion towards the other built on and transcending the requirements of the Law. 

    The handout for the study session is available here:

  5. Putting Aside Fear for Courage - DT Shelakh SCR

    The signs of a spiritual renaissance are all around us.  Candidates are increasingly running for public office while openly touting their religious pedigrees as “believers” and even “born again” men and women.  The shelves in bookstores throughout the country are filled with the latest books on finding your spiritual path, discovering the meaning of life, embracing the light of spirituality and often understanding the most esoteric ancient mystical teachings in three easy lessons.

  6. Who Was Korakh DT Lewis Eron

    During the forty years in the wilderness, Moses faced a number of challenges to his leadership. Some arose out of our ancestors’ sense of loss and deprivation. Others centered on issues of policy. The most threatening of these challenges, however, was the constitutional crisis brought about by Korakh’s attempt to supplant both Moses as political leader and Aaron as High Priest.

  7. Hukat DT Arlene Berger

    In Genesis 50:10-11, Joseph observed a seven-day mourning period for his father Jacob, mourning bitterly and loudly.  When the Caaanites witnessed this, they observed that the people were holding “a solemn ceremony of mourning.” From this we derive the practice of shiva where we observe a specific period of mourning for those close to us. After the mourning period was over, Joseph and the mourners returned to Egypt to resume their daily lives.

  9. Silence as Protest (AKA The World of Silence) - Pinkhas DT Howard Cohen

    Silence in the world of verbal communication can be as complicated to interpret and as deliberate as any word choice. We are often as careful (or should be) about when we choose to remain silent as we are about the words we use to convey a message. In the world of printed words, silence is every bit as powerful as in the audio world. However, it is much more difficult to indicate.
