Portland's Eastside Synagogue 

Congregation Shir Tikvah is a mid-sized independent congregation. Our founders envisioned a participatory, learning community and we work hard to fulfill that promise. At less than 20 years old, we're the "start up" in Portland's Jewish Community. . 

Our neighborhoods are diverse and so are our supporters. They come from across the Jewish spectrum: Jew-by-birth, Jew-by-choice, gay, straight, interfaith, atheist, devout believer. We welcome all who want to grapple with the beauty and contradictions of our sacred texts to better understand our faith, our world and our place in it.

Shir Tikvah means "song of hope". We gather strength from each other and our tradition.

We've Moved

We are now in our new space at 2420 NE Sandy Blvd. The Commons building has natural light and plenty of room for worship, classes, activities, and more. Our joint vision with the Eastside Jewish Commons is to create a vibrant and welcoming eastside center for Jewish life.

We continue to monitor the coronavirus situation and will follow Oregon Health Authority precautions as we gradually open the Commons facility. Our office hours in the space are Monday - Thursday from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


Current Covid Protocols in Place

According to the Oregon Health Authority, fully vaccinated people can be indoors without a mask; some may choose to continue to wear one. Children under 12 and those not yet fully vaccinated should continue to wear masks indoors to protect themselves and others. 

If you are immunocompromised, please consult your doctor about specific precautions you should take in indoor group settings and let us know how we can help ensure that all of us are able to access our spiritual community. 

Please stay home if you are exhibiting signs of illness.

The ground floor of our facility is 9,000 square feet. The building is well ventilated.
