Question

If I'm asked to do a D'Var Torah at a meeting, what do I do?

Answer

A D'Var Torah is a commentary on the current week's Torah portion. It is your personal interpretation of what you consider significant in this Torah portion to the members of Brotherhood. It should not be merely someone else's comments that you are reading. There are plenty of sources and examples of D'Var Torahs on the web that you can read, re-interpret, and make your own.

The URJ website has a detailed description of How to Write a D'var Torah: A Beginner's Guide.
