Rabbi Glazer's High Holy Days Drashot

cfde8820-d953-48d6-8915-d48578b87f8eWe're realistic. We understand that not everyone can make it to services, classes, or special programs at CBS. Work, travel, family commitments, ill health, a flat tire, or a Netflix binge -- so many things can prevent us from in-person attendance.

Going forward, CBS will digitally archive all of our classes, sermons, and lectures. We feel that whether you make it to shul or not, "shul school" should be open for your enjoyment and edification!

We're kicking this project off with recordings of Rabbi Glazer's High Holy Days 5776 drashot (sermons) and divrei torah ("words of Torah"). You can listen just below or visit our Audio Resources page to listen!
