Greetings from Rabbi Hershenson
Summertime for me, professionally, is an opportunity to study and strategize for the coming calendar year at Temple Beth Tikvah. Of course that calendar begins in the Fall with our High Holy Days.
Our incredible board and committee chairs have worked diligently to calendar dates for services, Sunday school and Hebrew school, social action projects, adult learning, and social events for the Jewish year 5777, also known as 2016-2017.
Since I returned from England early July, I've been exploring that calendar, holidays, and feedback from TBT members and committees. So far, I am studying and collecting texts to nourish the thematic calendar that follows.
Founded in 2008, Temple Beth Tikvah is still a very young and evolving congregation.
In the beginning, each of the original founders had their own vision as to what they wanted this new Jewish community to be. They talked in small groups and large, then pooled their ideas and established Temple Beth Tikvah. There were itinerant rabbis to hold services for the wandering Jews. And from the beginning the values that are still part of our mission and vision were there: Community - Gemilut Chasadim; Education - Torah; Ritual - Tefilah; and Social Action - Tikkun Olam.
As years passed new members joined, the community grew, and Temple Beth Tikvah evolved to become the organization that we know today. But for all that we have grown, we aren't stagnant, but continue to develop.
