Let’s Join Together – Virtually!

Temple Beth Tikvah is a remarkable community of incredible individuals and we are blessed to have each other particularly during a pandemic.

Now, we have more opportunities for TBT members to come together online to learn and share and socialize. Check our calendar for upcoming online events.

Divrei Tikvah:
From Rabbi Johanna Hershenson

Rabbi Johanna Hershenson
Rabbi Johanna Hershenson

It is hard to believe the summer season is waning and autumn is filling the void. Crisp, cool mornings warmed by the sun finding its shorter path across the sky. Clear nights and stars. Final preparations for the start of the school year. And, the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah.

President’s Message:
From Kerrie Zurovsky

TBT president Kerrie Zurovsky
 
With the High Holy Days fast approaching, I feel called to talk about resiliency. For me, the past 17 months have been one gigantic lesson in flexibility. Have I adapted well to every new situation? Absolutely not. Have I shed a tear over almost every sudden plot twist in this crazy chapter of our lives? Absolutely. As a mom, wife, business owner and now TBT president, my own emotions don’t always get the full attention and acknowledgement they deserve. Isn’t that the way?

The More Torah, The More Life

The More Torah, The More Life jstern September 23, 2021

When I became rabbi of Monmouth Reform Temple in Tinton Falls, NJ, I quickly discovered that some people in our community thought we were a church. Mail was addressed to “Monmouth Reformed Temple,” and letters were addressed “Dear Pastor.”

Creation, Chaos, and Children

Creation, Chaos, and Children jstern September 17, 2021

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was unformed and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters. God said: “Let there be light.” And there was light.

Sukkot Breads in Fall Colors

Sukkot Breads in Fall Colors jstern September 13, 2021

Decorate your Sukkot table with Ethiopian, North African, and Sephardi breads full of fall colors and tantalizing spice mixes and broaden our palates to the customs of worldwide Jewish communities. Laden with seasonal honey, pumpkin, or orange, they don’t need braiding, and they make perfect gifts.

7 Jewish Endeavors to Make 5782 a Sweet New Year

7 Jewish Endeavors to Make 5782 a Sweet New Year jstern September 13, 2021

It’s a long-standing custom for Jews to wish one another a “sweet new year” on Rosh Hashanah; to hope that this coming year will be one filled with joy, fulfillment, and an abundance of blessings. However, Judaism isn’t a path focused simply on wishing for good things; if our goal is to make each year “sweeter” than the last, we must work to make it happen.
