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.

Coming Up

EREV SHABBAT AT HAVURAH SHALOM - Shorashim - Roots - Judur
Friday, November 22, 2019
7:00 PM

Shir Tikvah’s last congregational trip to Israel was privileged to visit their home in Gush Etzion, and in turn we are pleased to co-sponsor the visit to Portland by Roots, a Palestinian-Israeli initiative for understanding, non-violence, and transformation.

Join us to hear them on Erev Shabbat  
A short Kabbalat Shabbat Service with Havurah Shalom, P’nai Or and Shir Tikvah will be followed by a presentation from the two Roots representatives.

Please RSVP so they will know how many chairs and handouts to provide. Thanks.
