Rosh Hashanah is a month away! Time to get to work on those High Holiday sermons.
2 good stories (if you only have one on hand, it will suffice)
A handful of rabbinic principles
1 quote from Rashi (Ibn Ezra or Ramban will do if you can’t find a good Rashi)
1 bold statement
Dash of guilt (note: HANDLE WITH CARE)
Elegant turns of phrase
A personal anecdote or two
Toss well and serve in under 20 minutes. For some added spice, throw in a deeply moving tale of loss and a few tears.
Rabbi Seth Adelson
