E.T. remembered

Earlier today, I read of the death of Melissa Mathison who wrote the screenplay for the movie E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. That movie has great significance to me as I used a quote  and some of themes from the film, as the basis for the first Rosh Hashana sermon that I delivered as a Rabbi.

Reading one’s own words from more than 30 years ago is always eye-opening but as I read through that sermon this morning, I realized that even though I write much differently  today, the message of the sermon is still one I am more than comfortable with.

So, here is a link to the sermon, typed on my old standard typewriter, from 1982. Shabbat Shalom.
