President’s Message:
From Cere Fingerhut

TBT president Cere Fingerhut

You know I love a tortured metaphor, so it will likely come as no surprise that after spending a week at the Swimming Olympic Trials in Indianapolis a couple weeks ago, I’m thinking about our new Interim Rabbi and 2024-2025 Board as similar to the Olympic Team created in those 8 days. Perhaps more relatedly, is the parallel between the small intersquad meets we hold here in Bend and the meet that was the Olympic Trials.

Disconnect to Reconnect: The Unique Position of Camp as a Screen-Free, Immersive Space

Disconnect to Reconnect: The Unique Position of Camp as a Screen-Free, Immersive Space jemerman

Creating Belonging for Interfaith Families

Creating Belonging for Interfaith Families jemerman

Why This Summer is Different jemerman

Making a Jewish Ritual for my Divorce

Making a Jewish Ritual for my Divorce jemerman

In the weeks leading up to my civil divorce, I delved into Jewish tradition to see how I could mark it Jewishly. I'd been married under a chuppah with the exquisite blessings of our tradition; simply marking my divorce in the Cook County courthouse was not going to suffice.
