A Special Message from Rabbi Strom

In the book of Genesis, after Cain 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.

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.

Special Message from Rabbi Strom on the Election

This election season has undoubtedly filled us with a wide range of emotions as we continue to discuss the future of our nation. No matter how we voted, no matter what we believe, what we all know to be the truth is that this country is at a crossroads – fractured and polarized in a way that none of us has ever seen. We are in need of healing on a scale that is just as unprecedented. While I admit that I’m not sure exactly how we get there, I know that it needs to begin with each of us, searching within our hearts and souls as we think about who we are, how we act towards and speak to each other.
