As a Rabbi, I am constantly getting requests from congregants to comment on a particular news story, editorial, or event or happening in the area. The usual request, after "Have you read this Rabbi?" is: "You should give a sermon/write an article in the Temple Topics about that." Well, as not everyone in the congregation attends every Friday night service (to say the least) and I am not sure of the readership of my monthly Temple Topics column (which won't appear again until September anyway), I thought that a weblog might be the solution to the problem. Here I will be able to respond to requests/comments/e-mails about various events that I may have an opinion on and be able to share that opinion with whatever congregants or others might be interested.
Please feel free to leave your own comments or make suggestions. If you are interested, add the RSS feed or click on SholomRav's Hasidim as a follower to receive notices when new items are posted. (If this is new or a little confusing to you, we will make an instruction page or link below.)
Hopefully, this weblog will not only provide an insight for you on what your Rabbi is thinking, but also provoke your own thoughts and, maybe, a dialogue with other members of the congregation.
