Rabbi Johanna Hershenson
Rabbi Johanna Hershenson

Members of Temple Beth Tikvah are blessed to have a Rabbinic leader that cares deeply about her temple community. Has regard for our individual well-being. And endeavors to help us satisfy our spiritual selves.

Temple members that sit on the board of directors, chair committees and organize interest groups do so for the benefit of us all. And the love of the Jewish experience. They bring us together, enable us to connect and encourage us to engage.

If you would like to reach any of our Board of Directors, Committee Chairs, or Special interest groups, please send an email to: shalom@bethtikvahbend.org and use the name of the intended recipient as the subject.


Please remember you can always contact Rabbi Johanna (541-213-9880) or rabbihershenson@bethtikvahbend.org if you need to schedule an appointment.
