Read, Listen, or Watch

The Bridwell Library database of Olan sermons includes 211 audio recordings. The picture above shows boxes of original sermon tapes in the archives. The tapes were digitized in 2012 by the Norwick Center for Digital Solutions at SMU, funded by a grant from a friend of the project.

In this blog if no audio is available, the post introducing the sermon will invite you to Read the text. However, if audio is available, two other options will appear: Listen to the sound recording and Watch the video. The audio recordings capture Rabbi Olan’s powerful delivery. The videos are images of sermon text pages scrolling along with the audio recording.

The choice is yours:Read, Listen, or Watch. However you encounter these sermons, we hope that you will be moved by them.
