A first in Torah portion and Jewish holiday sermonizing; truly unique and refreshing. You will be rewarded in purchasing a copy and in delivering these gems either from your rabbinic pulpit or even at your Shabbos table.

In 2009, after a twelve-year hiatus in New York, where he practiced as an attorney and moonlighted as pulpit rabbi for a temple on Long Island on Shabbat and Jewish holidays, Rabbi Polter moved, with his wife and four children, to Detroit, Michigan, his native city. There he practices as an attorney and serves as professor of Judaic studies at Oakland University, teaching such diverse subjects as Introduction to Judaism, Jewish History, and Jewish Law. Rabbi Polter has eight siblings, sixty sofralia* and ten great sofralia. Stephen's hobbies include reading, writing, Chess and Bowling, and is an avid diehard Detroit Tigers' (baseball) fan.
*How did I arrive at "sofralia" as collective term for nephews and nieces? Sorority is the Latin term for sister. Fraternity is the Latin term for brother. Phile or Philia or Filia is the Latin term for child. Thus if we take the first syllables of "sorority" and "fraternity", and the final syllable of "philia", we get "sofralia". In other words, children of brothers and sisters, i.e. nephews and nieces.
