Kol Nidre Vigil

We will be holding a brief candlelight vigil on Friday September 29 at 5:45pm in the parking lot before our Kol Nidre service.  The vigil is a response to the events in Charlottesville last month.  We will also light candles in support of the victims of the flurry of natural disasters that have taken place over the past several weeks.  I encourage you to join us!

Welcome to Beth Tikvah Synagogue!

I encourage you to become familiar with our congregation and community via this website, and more importantly, in person at a religious service or at any of the social or educational activities we sponsor during the year. If you do, I am confident that you
will discover the warmth and embrace of our community.

Beth Tikvah is a community of adults, children and families that is warm, dynamic and engaging. We strive to foster a love and understanding of Judaism, to pass on the rich traditions of the Jewish People while making them meaningful to our lives today, and to shape a vibrant Jewish future for our children.  We are a congregation that truly cares for one another.  We come together to celebrate simchas (happy occasions) and personal
milestones, even as we come together to comfort each other in difficult times.

It has been my honor and a source of joy to be Beth Tikvah's rabbi for the past eight years.  I have grown and been nourished by my relationship with the congregation.  I encourage you to join us!

Rabbi Michael Swarttz
