Divrei Tikvah:
From Rabbi Johanna Hershenson

Rabbi Johanna Hershenson
Rabbi Johanna Hershenson

People used to say hindsight is 20/20 suggesting that we see choices and opportunities more clearly after the fact than we do during a given situation. This year, I am hearing people communicate relief and joy that 2020 is behind us. What a year it was! Happy 2021, friends and family!

President’s Message:
From Sheila Luber 

TBT President Sheila Luber

Finally, we find ourselves in the secular New Year and thankfully can kiss the past 12 months goodbye. My farewell is not fond. Perhaps like you, I detested this last year and I’m happy it’s behind us. I’m hopeful, even optimistic, that 2021 holds much promise for better times, revitalized mental and physical health, greater riches by every measure, and more kindness spread throughout the world.

From the Union For Reform Judaism / Reform Movement

Nationalism Unhinged: Jewish Insight and Wisdom

Nationalism Unhinged: Jewish Insight and Wisdom kbkaput January 19, 2021

In Hebrew, two terms describe two different aspects of nationalism. Leumiut directly translates to “nationalism"; leumanut carries a jingoistic, chauvinistic, supremacist, and extremist brand of nationalism.
