No, it isn't possible to break a stream of water with fingers.
The reason for this is that water is a liquid and its atoms are bonded together by attractive forces. Although the inter molecular attraction forces in water (liquids) is a bit lesser than solids so  the molecules can move around freely, but these forces are strong enough to bind the water molecules with considerable force so that they don't break apart.
