Our Religious School offers classes, programs and field trips for our students.

We have a Family Education program during the year where families attend a Sunday morning class together and learn about Jewish history, values or life cycle events.

We have Family Retreats where our families can celebrate Shabbat and enjoy creative programs and social time away from the stresses and schedule of home life.

Our Cantorial Soloist, Ilana Axel, leads our children’s choirs (Kolan Aleph and Kolan Bet) which welcome children of all different musical abilities. The choirs participate in various holiday and Shabbat services, as well as performing occasional local singing venues.

Our Social Action Committee welcomes the involvement of our young families in caring for our garden and helping cook in our soup kitchen.

Our Religious School continues until twelfth grade and has a special program for students in Grades 8-12 that includes a dinner and learning session with our rabbi and various educators on Tuesday evenings. In addition, some of our older teens serve as student teachers in our religious school program.

Our Youth Groups offer social, educational and service opportunities for our Tweens and Teens within our own Beth Tikvah community, as well as within the larger Jewish Chicagoland community.

Members ages 12-18 are eligible for our older children’s choir, Kolan Bet, and can then transition into the adult choir, Kol Tikvah, if interest and ability permit. We also offer opportunities for young musicians in songleading and participation in our synagogue instrumental ensemble, K’lei Tikvah.

Our Committees also welcome the involvement of our young adults in their activities as well.


Post High School

Our Sisterhood sends care packages to the college, military, or post-high school students of our members a few times of year so that they know their Beth Tikvah community is thinking of them.

We hold an annual post high school reunion "Blue Jeans Shabbat" the Friday after Thanksgiving, where our returning students can visit with one another. Our students are also invited to participate in the service if they should choose to do so.

There are also many Jewish resources for our post-high school students.


Twenty/Thirty/Forty-somethings

We have a young people’s group, NextGen (GenX/GenY), that holds events regularly that include baseball games, wine-tastings, dinners out and game nights.

We have Adult Education programs throughout the year including a Book Club, Torah Study every Saturday morning, and scholar-in-residence programs.

Men’s Club has twice-monthly card games on Monday evenings, a yearly summer golf outing, and Sunday brunches throughout the year. Sisterhood offers Mahjong games on some Monday evenings and some Monday afternoons, and has social and educational programs throughout the year for the women of the congregation.

Many of our congregants participate in our Committees according to their interests and abilities. If you like to cook, you are a good fit for our Caring Committee that provides meals for members and their families in times of illness. If you are a gardener, you would enjoy our community social action garden, Gan Tikvah. If you enjoy acting and singing, you can participate in our annual fundraiser that often includes dramatic and comedic elements. There are committees and activities to suit every interest and personality. Please see our Committee listings for more opportunities.
