Thank you for the honor of sharing my thoughts with you on this, the most solemn, holy day of the year. By now our stomachs have begun to rumble and we turn inward from material to spiritual concerns. We turn from praying as a community to focusing on our own personal pleas for forgiveness.

The Ram in the Thicket”

[Editor's Note: Robin's drash included holding up placards and a previously distributed handout with the lyrics of song “A Ram in the Thicket” by Shell Posen, who generously allowed us to include an MP3 recording of his original version. The lyrics appear at the end of this drash.]

Shanah Tovah.

Here we are in the month of Elul. Here we are, poised at the time between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, to reflect, to change, and to repair. We stand at the start of our community-wide, ritualized time in the calendar for teshuvah, or return. We take this opportunity seriously enough to spend many hours in thought, prayer and reflection.

First of all, I am honored and grateful for the opportunity to speak with you on the high holidays. While I suspect this won’t be the funniest drash you’ve ever heard, my hope is that it won’t be the longest either.

So, as this is the first drash that I give this year…actually the first ever! … I’ll make a Sh’hechiyanu prayer. You can join me if this is the first drash you’ve ever heard … otherwise, an amen would be appropriate at the end. … … …

“Restoring the Arc (of A Love Affair)”

The prophet Isaiah is on my mind and in my heart more and more. His voice rings in Yom Kippur’s Haftarah with messages I fear we’ve forgotten. With messages I believe we must begin to remember, even if they hurt our hearts. Especially because they hurt our hearts so deeply.
