Hearing Our Children

“Hearing Our Children” is Tehillah’s COVID Time Capsule Program, a grant-funded project to  help young students reflect on their experiences from the past year. Together we have  discussed new challenges and fears that have arisen in our lives and how we would like to  overcome them. We have considered the changes to each of our daily routines and schooling.  Each student has presented on an object that has represented their year, worked on an  individual pandemic documentation packet, and will soon put together a video reflection. We  are proud to share this project with you.

Parashat Ha'Azinu
Deuteronomy  32:1 - 32:52

“Listen O heavens and I will speak! And let the earth hear the words of my mouth.
Deuteronomy 37:1 
The opening sentence of Ha’Azinu

 

Words to hold on to
Or maybe images would be better
Yes, images
Each one able to connect as an individual
Unique

Ah, where to begin
Two directions
Spirit and body
Yes,
That is how I will begin

Maybe just, just maybe
They will follow the path
The path devised by heaven
To lead a life that is just, and loving and kind

Lessons learned in a lifetime
Not easy to share
Know they will stumble and fall
But may they rise again
Getting up to begin again
That is my prayer

Climate Change and Sins of Omission

Rabbi Haggai Resnikoff
Rebbe & Director of Community Learning
Yeshivat Chovevei Torah

How do we repent for sins of omission? When we repent for doing something wrong, the feeling is enough. Aside from the feeling, there’s really nothing else to do. But what about things we haven’t done? Here the feeling will not suffice. There are still actions we must take – and as soon as possible. Let’s apply this to the climate crisis.

Response to Vandalism

Dr. Mehnaz Afridi, director of the Holocaust, Genocide, and Interfaith Center at Manhattan College, started a GoGFundMe to pay for the damage caused by the vandal. The community response has been amazing; so far, she has raised over $4000. Let us participate as well.

"We live in a world where a few people's actions can hurt a whole community but we also know that a few people can transform the world. We need your help in mending the world and showing solidarity.  Let us repair and heal the communities that have been hit with hate, let us give light to their windows and doors."  


Mission Statement

At Congregation Tehillah, we search for meaningful and just expressions of our Judaism in today's world. We invite you to come as you are, bringing your unique story. We are a Jewish community where music, learning and spirituality come together. We are committed to an environment in which all are welcome wherever they or their families find themselves on their Jewish journey, inclusive of any age, race, orientation, gender identity, ability, and economic status. 

We are pleased to let the community know that Tehillah has been asked to be part of a leadership development program with Keshet.  
Keshet works for the full equality of all LGBTQ Jews and our families in Jewish life. We strengthen Jewish communities.
We equip Jewish organizations with the skills and knowledge to build LGBTQ-affirming communities,
create spaces in which all queer Jewish youth feel seen and valued, and advance LGBTQ rights nationwide.
