Welcome to Congregation Beth Tikvah’s website. I’m so glad you found us!
Being involved in a religious community that brings people together around shared values is more important now than ever. At this moment in history, when it is easy to allow technology to be a stand-in for face-to-face community, we at Congregation Beth Tikvah strive to deepen human connection, deepen connection to something bigger than ourselves (God), and to make the world a better place through acts of G’milut Chasadim (loving kindness).
While this site provides some basic information about us, the best way to learn about the values we hold dear, and the type of authentic, spiritual, and joyous community we seek to build, is by coming and experiencing Beth Tikvah in person.
I personally invite you to let me buy you coffee, so that we can get to know one another. Let me find someone to host you and your family for a Shabbat dinner. Come visit us on Shabbat and see an intimate community of Jewish spiritual seekers. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me. Let’s chat!
It is sung in the Torah service that “all its ways are pleasantness and all its paths are peace.” Let us help you find your way and your path into meaningful Jewish community.
Congregation Beth Tikvah is a unique community in South Jersey. Joyful, participatory, accessible, and open to all, Beth Tikvah prides itself on being one large extended family.
Affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism and led by a Reconstructionist rabbi, we are fully committed to egalitarianism. Our community is open to all, regardless of age, race, marital status, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
We are further committed to making Jewish tradition and Jewish learning accessible to all. All types of individuals and families, including interfaith families, are warmly received at Congregation Beth Tikvah.
The choice about which synagogue to join is not an easy one. We hope you will find it immediately apparent how warm and approachable the congregants, staff, and clergy are at Congregation Beth Tikvah.
Our congregation incorporates a deep respect and love for Jewish tradition and a commitment to make that tradition accessible and meaningful to all who participate in our growing community.
Community is number one at Congregation Beth Tikvah. It is said that in Judaism, “all its ways are pleasantness and all its paths are peace.” Some in our communal family may come to celebrate, others to mourn. Some wish to socialize, and others to worship. Judaism is alive and rejuvenating at Beth Tikvah, and we hope you will find a comfortable home among friends.
You sense the warmth of our community the moment you walk into services on a Friday evening. You see it in the hugs given while wishing one another a Shabbat Shalom. You hear it in the Rabbi’s voice as he greets you by name. Congregation Beth Tikvah is not just many individuals who practice one tradition. It is many individuals who practice one tradition as one.
Allow us to help you find your way in.
