I found the rabbi's sermon on Erev Rosh Hashanah 2015 very long-winded and not particularly insightful or illuminating. He drew a lengthy analogy between riding a hot air balloon and something else, which I didn't quite get. The Torah connection was hidden and quite obscure. The people who attend this synagogue do absolutely nothing to make new people feel welcome. I really felt I was unwanted there. The synagogue did hire an excellent cantor from out of town for the event, which helped a lot.
