High Holiday Day sermons

High Holiday Day sermons

I couldn’t agree more with Gabe Kahn’s sentiments (“White supremacists emboldened by the president,” Aug. 22). In fact, the entire Garden State of Mind — or at least significant excerpts — should be incorporated into every rabbi’s High Holy Day sermons this year.

I will simply add a few of my own thoughts about Trump’s response. As far as I’m concerned, he has lost all moral authority to lead our nation — in words, deeds, thoughts, and substance. Instead of being a Consoler-in-Chief, as President Obama was labeled in the aftermath of many mass shootings as he sought to heal our wounds, Trump displayed no empathy. His words divided us, they did not heal.
