Shabbat Services

Join us  to welcome Shabbat on Friday nights and Saturday mornings as we resume our in-person Services. For more information, click here.

Let’s Join Together – Virtually!

Temple Beth Tikvah is a remarkable community of incredible individuals and we are blessed to have each other. While there is no substitute for a really big hug, we are grateful for our virtual gatherings that enable us to see each other, chat and listen, sing, pray, learn and grow. If you are unable to join us for in-person Shabbat Services, please join us online.  Check our calendar for upcoming online events. If you’d like to attend any of our events, email templebethtikvah@gmail.com

We see it every time we look at our logo. We hear it at most of our events. It’s been the theme of our board meetings, and I imagine it will be discussed at length at our upcoming board retreat.
