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.


Current Covid Protocols in Place

We are continuing to meet in person for meetings and Shabbat. We are masking indoors.

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 or unable to be vaccinated.

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


High Holy Days with Shir Tikvah

Due to corona-virus concerns, we have made the difficult decision to limit our in-person, indoor services to small gatherings of members and associate members only. 
We invite guests to join us on Zoom or during one of our outdoor options. Click here to see what's happening for Yom Kippur. Contact the office for Zoom links by emailing here.
