Friday Night Shabbat Sermon 5778 - Christianity has long derided Judaism for being obsessed with law, claiming that love of Jesus replaces law, and that the teachings of the gospel replace the commandments of the Old Testament. However, as the Me Too movement meets the Catholic Church, and it is revealed how complicit church leadership is in employing and protecting sexual predators, it is time to reestablish the importance of law.
Rabbi Nickerson - Friday Night Shabbat Sermon 5778 - How do we choose to move away from our fears and towards communal hope? Reflections on Martha Nussbaum's latest book.

Rabbi Frimmer - Sermon - Shabbat Devarim 5778 - We need to reinvest ourselves in learning about Israel's government, understanding who has power and how that power is sustained and familiarizing ourselves with the non-profits that help to protect Israel’s democracy and create its democratic infrastructure. We need to pay closer attention to the struggles of non-Orthodox Jews in Israel, those looking for validation and legal permission to practice as they choose. It is unconscionable to tolerate a lack of tolerance for non-Orthodox Jewish identity in this supposed Jewish nation.
