Rabbi Samuel M. Cohon’s Sermon on Korach 5777

You know, it was a little bit hot this past week—like 116 degrees hot, like hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk hot, like the devil left here and went to hell for a break from the heat hot, like "It's so hot today I saw two trees fighting over a dog" hot. As the saying goes, “it’s a dry heat,” but so is the inside of a blast furnace and that doesn’t make it a great place to live and work.

Rabbi Samuel M. Cohon's Sermon On Naso 5777

There are times when the difference between the Jewish lunar calendar and the American solar calendar provide and opportunity for additional reflection and exploration on important subjects.

This week is one of those times.  Three weeks ago we began providing some perspective on the 50th Anniversary of the 6-Day War, in advance of Yom Yerushalayim, which fell on the Hebrew calendar about two weeks ago, the holiday that commemorates the unification of the holy city of Jerusalem in 1967.  In May we explored the extraordinary events and miraculous military results of the 6-Day War itself in context.  We talked a great deal about the capital city of Israel, both the Old and New City, East and West Jerusalem.
