The Hebrew Union College provided student Rabbis; Ron Stern in 1987-88, Oren Postrel in 1988-89, Faith Joy Smith in 1989-90, Laura Novak in 1990-91 and Stephen Kahn in 1991-92.
By this point it became apparent that NTHC was ready for a resident rabbi.
At this point, we could say the rest is history, but there is much more to bring things up to date.
North Tahoe Hebrew Congregation summer programs were initiated in the summer of 1983 and were a huge success, enabling many visitors and part-time residents to meet our Jewish community at North Lake Tahoe.
It was led by Tobala Speights, Janice Koster, Paula Tietz, Betty Fineman and Debra Frishman.
In 1995, the Sisterhood was disbanded for lack of interest and participation.
North Tahoe Hebrew Congregation has participated in and organized several notable charitable events through the years.
Since 1994, NTHC has taken the lead role in North Tahoe’s Holiday food and Clothing Giveaway, which has provided food, clothing and toys each December for needy families in the area.
It was during this period that the group was fortunate to obtain the services of Sid Mann of Reno. Mann was a dedicated Jewish leader and the son of an Orthodox Rabbi.
