President’s Welcome

Welcome to Congregation B’nai Tikvah’s home on the internet. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.

Our Congregation, founded in 1976 by twenty local families, is a proudly egalitarian, modern Conservative congregation affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. We offer a renewed engagement and commitment to young families, youth programs and Hebrew school, while providing a spiritual and social home for all generations of our community. Our membership is active and diverse: interfaith families, Jews by choice, young singles, couples just starting out, families with school-age children, empty nesters, retirees, and everything in between. B’nai Tikvah is a Conservative congregation building a Congregational Family focused on the future while respecting the legacy of our past.

Congregation B’nai Tikvah regularly gives back to the communities that surround us, providing a variety of social, social action, educational and cultural programs that extend beyond our congregational membership. Our wonderfully charismatic Rabbi, Jeremy Fine, and our passionate Hazzan, Hery Chulef, are a great clergy team, inspiring a level of ruach that is contagious. Join us for services, I know you’ll agree! We warmly welcome anyone to attend any of our weekly services.  I hope you will find our services to be warm, spiritually engaging, and quite fulfilling.

Our goal for B’nai Tikvah’s future remains much the same as those of the twenty founding families—to provide a welcoming home for those seeking a Conservative congregation, a place to pray, celebrate, learn, and grow. 

I am thrilled that you are interested in becoming part of the B’nai Tikvah family and look forward to an opportunity to meet you soon!
