A Special Message from Rabbi Strom

In the book of Genesis, after Cain has kills his brother Abel in a jealous rage, God confronts Cain. “The blood of your brother,” God rebukes, “cries out to me from the ground.” In the Hebrew, however, the word “blood” – d’mei – is actually in the plural, so that a more accurate translation would be “the bloods of your brother cry out to me.”


Naso D’var Torah by Rachel Broomer

5 years ago today I was standing on the Bimah and I was so short that if you were in the front row, all you could see was the top half of my head. Now, half a decade later, I’m slightly taller, but I have also taken on a lot more responsibility. Not just because I’m getting older, but by choice.


Rabbi Strom’s Invocation for Armonk American Legion Memorial Day Observance

Our God, God of our ancestors:

We thank You for the gift of life and the gifts of the world You have bestowed upon us. Our voices join together and rise up to You in the heavens, for the freedom and liberty we so often take for granted, despite our best efforts to the contrary; freedom and liberty that ring throughout our nation and will, God willing, reverberate and resonate for generations to come.
