Happenings

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. While there is no substitute for a really big hug, we are grateful for our virtual gatherings that enable us to see each other, chat and listen, sing, pray, learn and grow. 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. If you’d like to attend any of our events email templebethtikvah@gmail.com

Divrei Tikvah:
From Rabbi Johanna Hershenson

Winter solstice has passed and each day is a smidge longer than the day before. Barely noticeable and yet, still a fact of the season. Persisting through yet another Covid variant and uptick in contagion feels a lot like this time of year.

President’s Message:
From Kerrie Zurovsky

TBT president Kerrie Zurovsky
 
After the past two years, the start of 2022 can unleash some uncertainty and apprehension. However, I want to bring to light an exciting project which our congregation can join. In its thirteenth year, Temple Beth Tikvah is of bar/bat mitzvah age.

Taking a Breath for Life: URJ’s Actions to Build Resilience

Taking a Breath for Life: URJ’s Actions to Build Resilience jemerman January 19, 2022

On Tu Bishvat we celebrated trees and a season of new growth. I've been doing lots of thinking about trees, as I frequently do, and the role they play in providing oxygen for the planet. At the Union of Reform Judaism, we provide oxygen to our communities by creating compassionate spaces for our participants to grow and thrive. We can respond to current and future challenges by fostering resilience that reflect our Jewish values.

“Treat the Earth well. It was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children” jemerman January 11, 2022

The upcoming holiday of Tu BiShvat -- the birthday of the trees - brings back a memory of the American Museum of Natural History in New York. In the museum is an enormous cross-section of a giant sequoia tree. Standing before it is a sublime experience. The cross-section overwhelms you with its sheer size, inspiring questions about the size of the tree it was cut from.
