Divrei TikvahRJohannaHeadShot
From Rabbi Johanna Hershenson


The onset of this autumn season has been perhaps the most beautiful one I've experienced in years.  As deciduous leaves turned brilliantly yellow and fiery red beneath the evergreens, the smells of the fall harvest filled the air.  Pumpkins appear, now, at the entrance-ways of every supermarket.  Acorn and butternut squash are on sale. 


We all know, by now, that as November wanes, Chanukah and Thanksgiving will collide this year.  I hope folks have seen the abundance of cartoons and parodies about the 2014 Thanksgivukkah, or similarly named.


As a rabbi, I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of culling out symbolic connections among such occurrences so as to draw lessons that might enrich our sense of purpose and meaning in life.


Thanksgiving is a time for expressing gratitude for the abundances in our lives.  The obvious is sustenance.  It is a wonderful opportunity to count all our blessings in life such as family relations, friendships, prosperities, and good health.


There is no sounder way for us to express gratitude than to share our plenty with others.  Therefore the rabbis comment on the biblical command to leave a portion of the harvest for those who are in need.


When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap all the way to the edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest.  You shall not pick your vineyard bare, or gather the fallen fruit of your harvest; you shall leave them for the poor and the stranger: I am YHWH your God. 

(Leviticus 19:9-10)


In the Talmud, Rabbi Shimon (bar Yochai) says: 

For four purposes the Torah ordered the corner crop, the poor man's portion of the harvest, to be left at the end of one's field: 

  • As a precaution against robbing the poor: so that the owner, spotting a free moment when the poor are not present, might tell only his own poor kinsman. 
  • Against wasting the time of the poor: so that the poor should not have to sit and be on the lookout for the time when the owner will leave the corner of his field. 
  • Against suspicion: So that passersby should not curse the man who left no corner of his field. 
  • And as a precaution against cheaters who might leave no portion at all for the poor. 

(B. Shabbat 23a-b)


The rabbi is serious about making certain that the gesture of sharing is acted out in a manner that makes it as easy as possible for one who is needy to partake.  There is concern that no needy person be put at a disadvantage from another.  The sharing must be clean of preferential treatment.  The needy should not be put out, having to wait for an opportune moment, wasting time that could be better spent.  Leaving the corners should be a given so that there is no room for cheating or judging a neighbor harshly.


Such legal reasoning is a Jewish practice that the rabbis learned from Hellinist culture.  The rabbinic period in Jewish history intersects with the Hellinistic empire that reached across the ancient Near East.  Philosophy and democracy, intellectual culture from the ancient Greeks trickled into the Jewish consciousness and the Talmud is the result.


Unfortunately after Alexander the Great passed, leaving behind generals whose appreciation of local culture did not continue the pattern of their predecessor, the rules under which Jews lived changed.  Antiochus did not value Jewish religious practice and attempted to forbid it.  Mattathias rebelled.  His sons, the Maccabees joined him.  Abra kadabbra, Chanukah!


Usually we understand the theme of Chanukah to be a warning against assimilation.  But I am not sure that is really the case.  The rabbis condemn the Hasmonean dynasty (the Maccabees) for corruption by referring to their assimilation.  Still the rabbis themselves were forever changed as a result of several generations who were so markedly affected by Hellenist intellectual culture.


Throughout history, we Jews have a way of incorporating the best of the cultures with whom we come in contact without losing our sense of self as Jews.  This pattern demonstrates our capacity for change and evolutionary process and may very well explain why we are still here, unlike the Phonecians, Midianites, and Phillistines.


There is a certain humility in adapting ideas and practices from other cultures for our own edification and life enrichment.  Perhaps the gifts cultures share with one another are like exotic fruits that we like to sample in the supermarket.  They may become a part of our diet; they may not. 


The lesson of the season, this year as Thanksgiving and Chanukah collide, is the precedent is that we are invited to share in the harvest.   


~~ Rabbi Hershenson's office hours are by appointment.  If you would like to set up an appointment, please contact her by email at: johannahershenson@me.com, or by phone at 541-213-9880.

President's Message
From TBT President Mark Schindel

TBT Members and Friends~


What magnificent colors and weather we have experienced for autumn this year.  Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our day-to-day activities that we fail to notice and experience the beautiful wonders of nature.  It can be easy to fall into the trap of taking precious things for granted - nature, family, friends, health, and community.


In October, we were able to truly experience the benefits of a resident Rabbi.  Besides our regular Erev Shabbat service towards the end of the month, we also enjoyed a special Family Shabbat Celebration near the beginning of the month.  In between these events, we had a meaningful Torah study followed by a Shabbat Torah service.  Also, later in that week, but related to that Torah portion, Rabbi Hershenson led a candid and interesting Adult Education session on "The Kosher Sutra: Love and Sex in Judaism".  Having these events spaced out throughout the month makes it more possible to enjoy each one to its fullest extent. 


Also, we shared the sorrow of the funeral and burial for Pauline Lerner, Evie's beloved mother, and the joyous blessing of putting up the Mezuzah at Lorraine and Lawrence's home.  We had a strong turnout for our first Poker Tournament fundraiser, that all participants, including many beginners, thoroughly enjoyed.  Our many thanks to Jerry Greenbach and the Fundraising Committee, with special recognition to George Brant, for organizing and making this event so enjoyable and successful.  The TBT Men's Group had their annual dinner with the spouses, for which we gratefully thank Lawrence Schechter and Ralph Uri for coordinating.  


Under the direction of our Social Action committee, led by Burt Litman and Jeanne Freeman, a group was again able to participate in the Backdoor Caf� program of serving a full breakfast to homeless and needy people in the community on one of the Wednesday mornings.  Our children enjoyed the great learning opportunities at Sunday School and Hebrew classes.  For the women, there is a new activity of weekly hikes on Friday mornings, which besides being great exercise is additionally a nice social gathering.


In looking back on the month, it is amazing to realize how many different opportunities there were for ALL congregants to connect - spiritually, religiously, educationally, physically, socially, caringly, and meaningfully.  While we are certainly thankful for the many members that work so diligently to provide these opportunities, it is important that we all realize these activities are there for us to fully enjoy, and that we should make the effort to partake.  Although still a small congregation, we have the rare privilege of benefitting from a wide variety of programs and events.  It would be a shame to take this for granted and not enjoy it to the fullest extent.


So, for November and beyond, I encourage all of you to look at the calendar of the planned events and get involved in the ones that appeal to you.  Connect!  You will find the experience rewarding on many levels.  Your life will be enriched as you will enrich the life of others.  This is how we come together to build a community.

Religious Activities Update

Ann Rosenfield and Jill Muinch, Committee Co-Chairs


colorful star

October has flown by and finally we have had a more relaxed month of religious offerings.  The schedule we offered in October reflects what the religious schedules should look like most months in the future.  The first family Shabbat service led by Rabbi Hershenson was held on October 11th with a large number of families and others followed by a potluck dinner.  We also held a Munch and Torah on the 3rd Saturday of the month and had a lovely Shabbat service on the 4th Friday evening of October.  The highlight of the month was the lively Adult education session where Rabbi Hershenson discussed the sexual advice of the Torah.  We had a big crowd that evening and an interesting and fun discussion.


Because of some scheduling conflicts, the month of November will differ a little from our normal schedule.  Please make note of the dates for events that interest you.  Tuesday, November 5th we will hold adult education at 7:00 p.m. at the home of Beverly and Jeff Adler.  Rabbi Hershenson's topic for the evening will be "Lessons in Leadership."  The family Shabbat service and potluck will be held on November 8th and the topic for that evening will be "Jacob's Ladder."  On Saturday evening, November 9th,  we will have a movie social where you will have an opportunity to view the Hershenson's film "A Torah Tale." This month, the regular Shabbat service will be held on the second Friday, November 15th.  The sermon for the evening is entitled "Wrestling and Reconciliation." Munch and Torah study and service will be the following day, Saturday, November 16th.  Also, mark your calendars for Wednesday, November 27th for the Community Chanukah Menorah Lighting held at the Old Mill.


We hope to see you in November enjoying our offering of events.  Please let Ann or Jill know if you have any ideas for future events or have comments on the new schedule.

Thank You for Your High Holy Days Tzedakah Donations


At Rosh Hashanah we told you about the need in Central Oregon - the number of homeless and hungry and asked you to please help. You did with nearly $1,500 in donations. We want to share with you some of the solutions to the problem of homelessness and hunger so that you know how your donation helps.


In the last year the Bethlehem Inn has housed 1,000 individuals. Of those 1,000 - 1/3 are women; 2/3 men; 75 families with children have stayed in the shelter. The average length of stay is 30 days.


Through the effective delivery of comprehensive services and access to resources, residents are given the tools and opportunities to make life-affirming choices that will help lead them towards self-sufficiency.


The Compassionate Care fund has assisted in 414 instances paying for prescriptions, utility shut-off notices, rent and more. With the exception of Christmas when more is donated and given back to those in need of help, the checks made payable to the owed creditor, are no more than $50 each. That amounted to $23,239 in 2012.


On your behalf we have donated more than $300 to FUMC's Compassionate Care Fund and more than $400 to Bethlehem Inn. The Rabbi Caring Fund, relatively recent in TBT's history, has grown by more than $700.


Thank you to our members and guests who gave so generously.  BethlehemInn
