Rabbi Goldberg's Sermons

Divrei Torah

  • October 21, 2022:  Change can be good! The Torah does not change. But we do. ...
  • September 9, 2022The Torah portion Ki Tetzei begins discussing laws of war; however, in its second paragraph, it sharply turns to address issues of moral behavior in areas including family, agriculture, and sexual relations.
  • April 29, 2022:  Psalms are a great source of inspiration and enlightenment. Psalm 1 speaks of two and only two kinds of people: the righteous and the wicked. It declares that “the Eternal watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.” ...
  • April 8, 2022: ... Sermons in actions are an important part of living well. As Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel said, “More than we need textbooks we need text people!”

  • March 25, 2022: ... An old story, told many ways but the lesson is the same:

    There's always a wise monk (or hermit), living in a remote place, and an earnest student who has made a pilgrimage to see him, traveling a long distance to find his teacher. ...

  • March 18, 2022: ... What we need instead is a mindset that puts the current news within the context of an eternal perspective. The bad and good stuff happening now has happened before and will happen again. Rather than fret or foment yet another opinion about it all, we can find succor in Scripture.
  • March 11, 2022This week we begin our reading of the book Va-yikra, Leviticus, which details the rites of the sacrificial cult, the dynamics of ritual pollution and purification, and the path toward priestly holiness.
