Welcome to the Torah section of my blog.

This section will feature my writings, articles, d'rashot (sermons) and essays about Torah - in the broadest sense of the word. There is a 'Parashat haShavua' section, featuring my writings and sermons on the weekly parasha or haftara. There is also a 'Sermons for Special Occasions' section, with sermons given during the Festivals and High Holy Days. Futhermore, there is a 'Various Writings' section, containing essays and other writings dealing with various Torah- and Judaism-related themes.

All publications listed here are written either in Dutch or English.
Dutch readers: the 'Nederlands' section of this blog will contain more (Torah-related) Dutch-language writings.
