At Central Synagogue

Sermons from September 2015

Abigail Pogrebin
Our Jewish Home (Yom Kippur Appeal 5776)

Abigail Pogrebin  |  September 22, 2015

When I see study after study about how people are abandoning religious institutions and how Jews are forgoing Judaism, I look at Central Synagogue and think, why are we one of the few that have defied the trends? Why are we an outlier?

Stephanie D. Kolin
Unpolished (Yom Kippur 5776)

Stephanie D. Kolin  |  September 22, 2015

I’m a bit of a nervous flyer. Not a fan of turbulence, takeoffs, or what I determine to be alarming noises coming from what people say is the landing gear extending, but which I am fairly certain is the landing gear malfunctioning, breaking off, and tumbling to the earth.

Maurice A. Salth
Parashat Vayeilech

Peter J. Rubinstein
Life Frames of Reference (Rosh HaShanah 5776)

Peter J. Rubinstein  |  September 15, 2015

It’s been just over a year since I stepped aside as senior rabbi of this great congregation, and this is the first time I’ve given a sermon from this pulpit since then. It feels a little bit like stretching one’s atrophied sermonic muscles.

But upon reflection, I realize that life changes can be unsettling without being upsetting and can be vigorously disquieting without being disruptive.
