Divrei Tikvah:
From Rabbi Johanna Hershenson

Rabbi Johanna Hershenson
Rabbi Johanna Hershenson

Our High Holy Day season has come and gone. While our gathering could not be, we live-streamed services and sermons and heard the shofar sound from Pioneer Park as many came through to participate in Tashlich, casting last year’s regrets into the river to be carried away. Emerge, we did, from Yom Kippur day, with the Jewish year, 5782, before us.

President’s Message:
From Kerrie Zurovsky

TBT president Kerrie Zurovsky
 
I think I can finally say Happy Fall, Y’all! We’ve had enough crisp autumn days to feel the changes in the air. Personally, I am ready for the change. It’s been a wonderful summer, but I am ready for sweater-weather, sitting by the fireplace, carving pumpkins with my kids and waxing up the skis in preparation for ski season. As all of this excitement bubbles up, I also find myself tempering my emotions with an air of caution. The rug keeps getting pulled out from under us, so my natural instinct has been to tread lightly into each new day.

I write this as the Sines vs. Kessler trial commences. This long-awaited lawsuit seeks to hold the organizers of the deadly 2017 Unite the Right rally accountable for their actions. Bone-chilling evidence will be presented in this trial that will make us realize how close we came to experiencing an even greater tragedy than the death of Heather Heyer and the wounding of so many others.

On the Jewish Road to Becoming the Best Version of Ourselves

On the Jewish Road to Becoming the Best Version of Ourselves jemerman October 26, 2021

Film Review: Golden Voices urjadmin October 4, 2021

In Evgeny Ruman’s bittersweet new film, Golden Voices, a pair of aging voice actors find their lives in upheaval after immigrating to Israel from the former Soviet Union.
