Happenings

Let’s Join Together – Virtually!

Temple Beth Tikvah is a remarkable community of incredible individuals and we are blessed to have each other particularly during a pandemic. 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. Now, we have more opportunities for TBT members to come together online to learn and share and socialize. Check our calendar for upcoming online events. If you’d like to attend any of our events email templebethtikvah@gmail.com
