The idea of the 'social sermon,' a concept pioneered by Darim Online that encourages rabbis to involve congregants in learning with them and helping to develop their weekly sermons by using Twitter or Facebook, seems to be gaining visibility. The idea also seems to have applicability well beyond the context of the synagogue sermon. How about using it with teens or to make learning for busy young adults more practical?
Check out the story from the Covenant Foundation, which funded Darim Online, together with replies from a number of rabbis, here.

Is this something you would try? Where and how else might this approach be used?
