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.

Behar

From the mountaintop
A vantage point unlike any other
caught in weekly patterns,
tasks assigned,
habits fulfilled,
the mountain is rarely visited
after all, who has time

 

But sojourns to the mountaintop
have their own timetable,
their own rhythm.
Giving us the opportunity
to truly experience the journey,
forcing us to stop,
and look around

 

Our visits to the mountaintops
come in waves
     
waves of joy
     
waves of grief
     
waves of change foisted upon us

 

Once we arrive
     
we consider
     
we ponder
     
we receive
     
we reflect upon the knowledge,
that little bit of extra knowing,
of dare we call it, wisdom
that reaches deep within
and reminds us
beyond all measure
that this journey, each and every part of it,
is a gift
and with each successive journey to the mountaintop
more becomes illuminated
even as we find ourselves on ground level once more

Mitzvah of the Week

The month of May has begun; we wish our friends in the Muslim community a happy Eid Mubarak, the end of Ramadan. Yom HaZikaron and Yom Hatzmaut occurred earlier this week and we will acknowledge both tonight.

As we mark these holidays, we also live in a time where different months focus on different segments of our society. May is both Jewish Heritage Month and Mental Health Awareness Month.

 As Jews we reflect upon our heritage on a regular basis and may not need a special reason to do so this month.

Click HERE to visit the Jewish Heritage Month website.

 As much as we talk about our Jewish heritage, we do not talk about mental health as a matter of course. Remember, mental health issues touch all of us, particularly after two years of Covid, without even beginning to address the political turmoil around us. We are living in stressful times. For some of us it exacerbates underlying mental health issues.

 With that in mind, I offer a seemingly simple mitzvah of the week: take a little extra time to listen to one another this week. The need to be seen and heard is crucial. If you think someone needs more support than you are able to supply, encourage them to seek further support.

Let us take small steps together so that we are able to take the larger steps that are needed.

Podcast

"Grappling with Anti-Semitism – Part II

In this episode of Tehillah Talks, we speak about what Anti-Semitism means as a young person today.

We discuss:

  • What Anti-Semitism demands of us in relation to other groups under attack
  • How we tell the story of Ant-Semitism without blinding ourselves to the suffering of others
  • How our laws are embedded in our story, giving empathy a voice

Our teens make us proud -- share our pride!

Tehillah Talks is now available on Apple Podcasts.

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.
