Yom Hashoah candleJoin our clergy, Kol Tikvah, and youth leaders in the Sanctuary as we acknowledge and remember the great tragedy of our people, of all people, at the hands of the Nazi tyranny.

Our speaker will be George Levy Mueller. Mueller was born in Germany to Max and Lucie Levy. In 1938, George and his family were forced out of their home and forced to live in a Juden Haus (Jew House). On November 9th, during Kristallnacht, George’s father and uncle were arrested and taken to Sachsenhausen concentration camp. Following Kristallnacht, George and his sister Ursula were sent to Holland, were they lived in hiding in a convent. In 1943, George and his sister were deported to Vught concentration camp, than to Westerbork and finally to Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany. They were liberated in April 1945 by the Russian army while on a death train. George and Ursula returned to Holland and eventually came to the United States in 1947.

Find a super Super Hero costume to put over your Already Super Self. It's going to be SUPERB!

At Beth Tikvah Congregation, kids and adults dress-up in costumes, and together we celebrate Purim by holding a Purim Service, reading the megillah, singing Purim songs and, of course, by hosting a grand Purim Spiel -- a creative retelling of the Purim story, often in the form of a short play or musical.

Worship

Worship is very important to us at Beth Tikvah Congregation. We believe that - through prayer on the Sabbath, on Jewish Holidays, and as a part of our everyday lives - we can improve ourselves, our relationships with each other, and with God. Through prayer we give voice to the longings in our hearts. We find comfort, inspiration, meaning, guidance and hope through prayer, and we reconnect with our most sacred values and ideals.

Our prayer book, Mishkan T’filah, asserts that “each of us enters this sanctuary with a different need,” and at BTC we strive to create worship that is engaging, accessible and relevant. Attending or viewing online one of our services, you will immediately notice that our services include joyous, uplifting music, inspirational sermons, celebrations of life cycle events, time for reflection and meditation, as well as shared laughter. Following each worship service, the congregation typically gathers together to enjoy delicious desserts and refreshments each other’s company.

We are always delighted to have guests and long-time members worship with us and we want you to feel comfortable, included, and attuned to what is happening at any given moment. More information about attending our worship services for the first time can be found here.

Our prayer services include both Hebrew and English in the form of prayers, readings and songs, and most everything that appears in Hebrew is both translated and transliterated in the prayer book. While there is much to be said about our prayer services, the best way to find out more is to experience our worship. We hope to see you at one of our upcoming worship services. We most frequently gather together for prayer on Friday evenings when we usher in the Jewish Sabbath (Shabbat); a 24-hour period of rest, reflection, renewal and reconnection to God.

Please refer to the list of our Shabbat Services offered, or view our congregational Calendar. Also, if you are unable to attend in-person, you can join us weekly in prayer online through our live streaming.
