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.
