Yom Kippur sermons

G'mar chatima tova and shana tova!

Below you'll find links to PDFs of both of my Yom Kippur sermons. As always, I'd love your feedback, either by commenting here or by emailing me.

May 5772 bring blessing for us all.

• Yom Kippur evening/Kol Nidrei: "Spiritual, but not Religious?"
• Yom Kippur morning: "Wealth, Poverty, and Purpose"

Rosh Hashanah Day 2 @ Maroon Bells

Thanks to all who joined us to bring in the new year 5772 at Maroon Bells on Friday morning. There was a great community feeling, and the weather and scenery couldn't be beat!  We have some videos of the morning, below.

We hope you'll celebrate with us again at Maroon Bells -- and we hope it'll be before next Rosh Hashanah, so stay tuned!
