Join Us For A Taste of Portland's Emerging Judaism
Our cohort members hold regular gatherings that innovate on Jewish practice and bring new life to ancient traditions.
TischPDX has been instrumental in my development as a Jewish community organizer, event steward, and teacher. I have learned skills and analyses that have made my practice more consistent and dependable, felt held in the warm, emboldening accountability of a likeminded cohort, and made friends who I hope will be lifelong. Thanks to Tisch, I finally feel like I can step into my role as an official Jewish Educator in the community!"
