A very special book, Encountering Torah: Reflections on the Weekly
Portion, has just been published by Rabbi Vernon Kurtz in honor of the 25th
Anniversary of his rabbinate here at Beth El. He has chosen two sermons on
almost every Torah portion and assembled them in the book. It represents his
understanding not only of the lessons of Torah, but the lessons of life. It is
a beautiful example of Jewish thought and contemporary book publishing.
