Rabbi Stephen Fuchs spoke at Congregation Albert in Albuquerque, New Mexico in January, once as the keynote speaker for our Martin Luther King observance, and once on his Torah Commentary book entitled, ToraHighlights. At the MLK celebration where over 600 people were in attendance, his topic was "Keeping the Dream Alive." The audience was taken by his ideas, his warmth and the personal nature of his presentation.
Later in the day, Steve spoke to about two dozen people on the meaning of the Book of Exodus and of our freedom narrative. His talk was stimulating, thought-provoking, well-organized and eloquent. He listens well to students' questions and opinions, and responds with sensitivity.
If you would like to bring a quality teacher/speaker who can reach congregants, I heartily recommend Rabbi Stephen Fuchs.

Stephen provided Monmouth Reform Temple with a compelling weekend of scholarship, teaching how relevant Judaism is in our everyday life. As a former President of the World Union For Progressive Judaism, his participation in Jewish growth and acceptance in Germany is a lesson for us all ...
I am always so impressed to see how you [Rabbi Fuchs] can keep a whole room of adults engaged and listening for hours on end.
"If you are looking for a compelling, mesmerizing speaker for a scholar or a Shabbat please consider Rabbi Stephen Fuchs. He spoke at Sha'arey Shalom on Shabbat evening. He was an unbelievable speaker and extremely gracious to all the congregants (and there are many). We are inviting him back next year!”
We had a phenomenal rabbi in residence in Rabbi Stephen Fuchs, who not only was our Waldman Lecturer in April but also inspired us with his words about the holocaust, and his lessons to our children about world-wide Jewry.”
What a beautiful and moving Shabbaton with Rabbi Stephen Fuchs at Temple Sinai of Bergen County. I could not have asked for a more powerful and dynamic speaker whose Friday and Saturday messages were exactly what I needed to hear. His book "What's in It for Me? Finding Ourselves in Biblical Narratives" should be read by everyone. Todah rabah, Rabbi Fuchs, for everything. Thank you, Rabbi Jordan Millstein for letting me plan the Shabbaton in memory of David.
"I appreciate the endorsements! Very nice!"
Many warm thanks to Rev. Dr. Damaris D. Whittaker for making me feel so welcome speaking at her church,
First United Church of Christ in Hartford, this morning. I spoke on "the Great Commission" of Matthew 28 from a Jewish perspective.
I was deeply honored by the presence of the esteemed New Testament scholar,
Professor Efrain Agosto in the congregation!
