Special Message from Rabbi Strom on #GivingTuesday.


Baruch Atah America… The Secular Sukkot?

Judaism sometimes has a bum rap- sad music, sad holidays… We even have a slogan for it: “They tried to kill us, we won, let’s eat!” But occasionally we American Jews get a bonus. We don’t just dress up in costumes and eat sweets for Halloween, we get Purim too! And we don’t just get one Fall harvest festival (Sukkot), we get the mother of all feasts (which in part was inspired by Sukkot): Thanksgiving.


Shabbat of Unity and Healing by Rabbi Strom

Now this may sound pretty silly, but I do believe my shuffle speaks to me. As I was running errands this morning, within about 15 minutes of each other, my ears were treated to two different versions of the same song. It was Bold as Love. First came the cover by John Mayer, and shortly thereafter, the original by Jimi Hendrix. And so, knowing as many of you do how I subscribe to the famous Einstein quote that “Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous,” I knew this was no mere coincidence.
