Standing at Sinai: Sermons and Writings (Paperback)
Standing at Sinai: Sermons and Writings captures the trends and the struggles of 25 years at Temple Sinai, a large Reform Jewish synagogue in Washington, D.C. The book includes a selection of Rabbi Fred Reiner's High Holy Day sermons, Purim messages, scholarly papers, and additional writings that comment on key moments in his tenure. The result reflects Rabbi Reiner's religious and intellectual journey, as well as the history of Temple Sinai during years of challenge, expansion, and growth. Standing at Sinai grapples with the questions confronting the congregation and the larger Jewish community at the turn of the 21st century: Can our Jewish community maintain its integrity as it continues to assimilate? What role does Israel play in our lives? What are the beliefs and values that help to shape us as post-modern American Jews?
