It’s your community. Stay connected.
Membership Renewal Time
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.
You can make your membership payment here.
Let’s Join Together – Virtually!
Our online Kabbalat Shabbats are a joy for all who join in. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
And while we are all staying safe at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19 you can learn a lot and laugh a little with Rabbi Johanna’s YouTube channel.

Temple Beth Tikvah has a wealth of Jewish programming for families with children – from toddlers to teens. We greatly respect the needs of our children and feel it is important to support the families while nurturing their child’s own Jewish values and growth.

From Rabbi Johanna Hershenson
For rabbis all over the world, the month of August means time to prepare for the High Holy Days. Rosh Chodesh, the new moon indicating the Hebrew month of Elul has emerged, falls on August 20th. The ancient rabbis suggest that it is with the new moon of Elul that we begin preparing for the Jewish New Year. In this month we reflect and self-assess our own conduct during the past year in relation to personal and professional goals and the way we wish to present ourselves in the world.
From Sheila Luber
Aren’t we lucky to live in Central Oregon? We have beautiful weather, wide open spaces with myriad lakes, paths and trails, and for a fortunate few…the joy of children and grandchildren, grandparents or parents nearby. The rest of us are thankful for technology connecting us with our loved ones from afar via Zoom, Facebook and FaceTime… and it’s no different for those we hold dear right here in TBT. It’s a very good time to reach out to others in our temple.
