"Let's Step Outside..." - Rabbi Ingber's Sermon
Rabbi Ingber encourages us to be inspired by a moment in Abraham's story, perhaps even more profound and instructive than " Lech Lecha" . G-d takes Abraham outside to count the uncountable stars of his future, and see his journey from a fresh perspective. Rabbi Ingber invites us to be Abrhamams, to step outside of the stories that constrict and limit us, and try on something new.
