President’s Message:
From Cere Fingerhut

TBT president Cere Fingerhut

There are few things as compelling as a good ritual. Rituals tie us to a moment, offer clear memory, define the small and large events within a relationship. Drs. Julie and John Gottman highlight their importance in building a “Sound Relationship House” stressing that without them, relationship satisfaction suffers.


Divrei Tikvah
from Rabbi Johanna Hershenson

Rabbi Johanna Hershenson
Shana tovah, Temple Beth Tikvah family and friends! Can you believe it? Labor Day is behind us, school has begun, and the High Holy Days are just weeks away. Celebrating the Jewish New Year, for me, is always about reflecting and recalibrating. When I was younger, I enjoyed the recalibrating more than the reflecting.

Simple Ways to Make Yom Kippur Meaningful at Home with Young Children jemerman September 13, 2023

As the high holidays approach, we are reminded that there are so many meaningful Jewish moments to celebrate. Within the joy and ruach (spirit) of holidays like Rosh Hashanah, Sukkot, and Simchat Torah, lies the solemn and serious Yom Kippur. There are a myriad of ways to make Yom Kippur meaningful for young children, for whom especially, Yom Kippur is not an easy holiday to understand.
