Divrei Tikvah:
From Rabbi Johanna Hershenson

Rabbi Johanna Hershenson

Calendar milestones, such as bringing in a new year, invite nostalgic memories of the past and idealistic hopes for the future. I am satisfied having finished my Masters in Counseling program and am finding my way to put my freshly honed skills to work. 2019 was a solid year for us.
 
The truth is that I am greatly concerned about 2020. It is an election year and I imagine it will be chock full of nastiness, divisiveness, and fear.

President’s Message:
From Sheila Luber & Ann Rosenfield

TBT co-presidents, Sheila Luber and Ann Rosenfield
Celebrating the secular New Year provides us with an opportunity to pause and reflect, reboot and refresh who we are and what we do as individuals and as a community. Let’s give grace and space for each other’s words and ideas. Communicate with compassion and openness to help dampen the background noise in our politically-charged world. Say “I’m sorry” and offer forgiveness.
