map01Thank you for visiting the Beth Tikvah Congregation website! We are a dynamic, warm, and friendly Reform Jewish congregation located in the Northwest Chicago Suburbs where all are welcome. At Beth Tikvah Congregation (BTC) relationships matter most. We strive to be there for one another in both times of joy as well as sorrow. Beth Tikvah Congregation is best known for its inclusive, involved, caring and compassionate community; for its excellent clergy, staff and lay leadership; for its phenomenal lay choirs; and for the overall positive difference BTC makes in our members’ lives.

At Beth Tikvah Congregation, we are dedicated to Jewish values and the pursuit of Holiness through engaging worship, joyous celebration of holidays and lifecycle events and by caring for one another. At the same time, we are committed to education for all ages, to Tikkun Olam (bettering our world), welcoming interfaith families, supporting interfaith relations, and furthering connections to the State of Israel, to Jewish summer camp, and so much more!

Whether you are new to the area, new to Jewish life, or a long-time veteran...whatever your background, level of observance, age, relationship status, or orientation...we are grateful for your interest in Beth Tikvah Congregation. We invite you to contact our Rabbi, Taron Tachman, take a tour of BTC, join us for Friday night Shabbat Services, or an upcoming program. We look forward to meeting you soon!

Rabbi2014Shalom! Welcome to the Beth Tikvah Congregation (BTC) website! My name is Taron Tachman. Serving as the rabbi at BTC is one of the greatest blessings in my life. I believe that my first priority as a rabbi is to invite and welcome people to BTC and be a warm, friendly presence. My goal is to help both visitors and long-time members feel cared for, listened to, and valued. For me, the most gratifying aspect of my work is forging sacred relationships of trust, caring and friendship. Therefore, while this Internet greeting will have to do for the moment, I would be happy to meet with you in person, speak with you on the phone or connect with you on This email address is being protected from spambots.

I sincerely believe that Judaism has the power to transform our lives, our relationships, and the world. I am dedicated to fostering in others a passionate and meaningful connection to Jewish wisdom, tradition, faith and community. What I especially appreciate about the BTC community is the ease to which newcomers with all kinds of backgrounds, orientations, and situations are included, embraced and celebrated. I am also impressed by the level of caring and compassion members express toward each other and their dedication to making a difference in the world. At BTC we strive to make education, lifecycle events, worship and holiday observance interesting, relevant and uplifting. At BTC, there is joy and levity, deep friendships and endless chances for personal growth and fulfillment. To learn more about me, please visit my webpage.
