The expectation is that you will give a 10-minute talk about something that is uplifting and/or thought provoking (but not too controversial). It doesn’t have to be original even, one option is to choose readings that you think will inspire us. Or talk about something personal – a challenge you overcame, a life-changing experience, some wisdom you’ve gained – you get the idea.
For the Friday night sermon, it is not necessary that you refer to the Torah portion but if you are interested you can find the Torah portion for any given week along with the full text and a summary here: reformjudaism.org/calendar
