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.

PARASHAT BEHA'ALOTCHA
Numbers 8:1 - 12:16

Dear Friends,

In this week’s Torah portion, beha’alotecha, Moses complains to God about being overworked. God suggests he bring seventy elders of the community to help him, and says that God will put some of God’s spirit into the elders. Moses does so, and it turns out there are two elders, Eldad and Medad, who aren’t by the Tent of Meeting but get this spirit anyway. They start to speak their truth in the camp, and Joshua complains to Moses that they are out of line. Moses says he doesn’t have a problem with other prophets being around. In fact, there should be more of them. Talmud tells us that Eldad and Medad never stopped being prophets.

Mitzvah of the Week

Camp ZekeAs school draws to end and parents start preparing to send their children to camp, we ask you to make a difference in the lives of four Ukrainian children who need the funds to take advantage of the opportunity to go to Camp Zeke. Please read the letter below - any and all donations are welcome. 

 

We were recently approached by a school in New York looking for a summer camp for four students who just moved to the U.S. from Ukraine. After the tremendous challenges they overcame to escape the war and make their way to the U.S., we want nothing more than to give them a carefree summer full of the joy, laughter, and friendships that Camp Zeke is known for.

However, as their families establish themselves in a new country, they cannot afford camp. We will be providing a completely free summer camp experience for these families. That's where you come in! Over the next few weeks, we are raising $20,400 from our community -- all of you -- for these four campers to join us at Zeke this summer. Please make a gift today to help these kids experience the carefree summer they especially deserve after such a trying year.

We are grateful to add that our foundation partners have stepped up with a matching challenge grant to inspire your generosity. For every gift that you give now, our partners will add a match. Your donation, given now, will go to work right away, enabling these four campers to join our community. In such trying times, we can only lean on each other. It warms our hearts to know that Camp Zeke’s mission – of celebrating healthy, active living in a joyful Jewish community – is as important to you as it is to us. Please help us to provide an incredible summer for these kids.

"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!

Gardeners Needed


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Do you love to garden but don’t have a patch of earth to work with? Riverdale Yonkers Society for Ethical Culture is seeking volunteers who will help steward the land where our building sits. We’ve been removing invasives and putting in native plants to attract and support pollinators and improve the ecology of the land. 

This is an on-going project that can accommodate your schedule.

Our Hebrew School children came together in person and created this collage signifying the joys of working together and creating community.

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.
