“Against an age of alienation, isolation, and polarization, we are building a community of connection and encounter. Our goal is to fulfill the prophet Isaiah’s dream: Neveh Shalom will be a house for people of all backgrounds, orientations, genders, and viewpoints. We will then share our culture with the larger community and world.”

– RABBI DAVID KOSAK

WRITINGS FROM OUR CLERGY TEAM

Each week our clergy, Rabbi Kosak and Rabbi Posen, write sermons and divrei Torah for synagogue communications and services. Here you’ll find weekly writings and an archive of past writings. If you’re not subscribed to our email list, visit our Contact page to sign up to receive these writings by email.

The Oldest Hatred and the Skills We Need

Strange thoughts occur during a pandemic. Early on, in the first weeks of shutdown when we didn’t know much, we placed a container of bleach water outside the house and dipped our shoes in it before reentering the house. The panic and concern were so heightened back then. At the same time, a segment featuring Dr. Sanjay Gupta demonstrated how to wipe down food containers after a shopping run.

A Place for Rage – Parshat Korach 5781

If there are atrocities, if there is corruption, by all means, call it out. On the other hand, private, deliberate, and strategic rebukes have their places too. It doesn’t seem to be the preferred method in an age driven by social media and every minute news, but if this week’s Torah portion teaches anything, it’s that the measured response deserves a seat at the table.
