Today I speak about a recent speech...  no, not Obama's on government shutdown, or Netanyahu's speech at the United Nations... but about one given by the rabbi of the largest Orthodox congregation in America, Rabbi Mitchell Wohlberg of Beth Tfiloh in Baltimore, Maryland. This was given on Rosh Hashana, and was entitled, "Derech Eretz." Direct hit, ladies and gentlemen. I offer my commentary on this excellent and engaging sermon, one which I heard personally at Beth Tfiloh and whose entire reading I recommend at, click on "congregation" and then sermons. No one says it better from this prestigious pulpit.
