Sermons by Guest Speakers

During the summer, as well as on certain special occasions, sermons are given by guest speakers, usually lay members of Temple Aliyah. We also have guest speakers for certain events, such as Shabbaton, or Sisterhood and Men's Club Shabbat.  In addition as part of our annual Tikkun Layl Shavuot, we have a series of "Sermon Slams." These are included here.

If you would like to give a sermon, please contact Rabbi Perkins with your idea.

Recent sermons by Rabbi Perkins can be found here.
