JTS Torah

Senior Sermon

This Shabbat I delivered my Senior Sermon at The Jewish Theological Seminary. In the final year of Rabbinical School, each senior rabbinical student is given the opportunity to teach the Seminary community. This is considered to be one of the major milestones on the journey toward rabbinic ordination. On either a Friday evening or Saturday morning, the student presents a sermon based on that week’s Torah portion in the Women’s League Seminary Synagogue.

My sermon on Parshat Vayishlach entitled “Ya’akov Is Left Alone: Wrestling From Darkness to Hope” can be accessed here.

I hope that others will be inspired by my personal message and my Torah.
