About Us

Congregation Shir Tikvah ​​​strives to be a kehillah kedosha (holy community) where all are respected, valued and included. Clergy, staff and dedicated volunteers work together to provide a space for spiritual growth and study. As partners in Jewish life, we educate our children and offer programming around holidays, cultural interests and acts of social justice. We study hard, embrace our quirkiness, and try to throw the best parties allowed by coronavirus restrictions. 

Our Vision Statement


A sacred community whose practice of liberal Judaism grows from an understanding and love of the tradition on which it stands, centered in Torah. 

A participatory community committed to a true partnership between our Rabbi and laity, a collaborative relationship built on reciprocity, shaped by the spirit of covenant. 

An inclusive community where all are welcome to join in creating a Jewish congregational family - an enthusiastic, working, living community of faith. 

A worship community where all may take part in celebration of Shabbat and holidays, drawing on fresh as well as traditional approaches to prayer, ritual, Torah, music and meditations, to nourish personal and communal spiritual life. 

A learning community creating with our Rabbi abundant and varied opportunities for Jewish study which brings the practice of learning and reflection to all aspects of our existence. 

An intergenerational community in which adults and children learn from each other through study, worship, and shared love of Judaism. 

A caring community responsive to members in need; one actively committed to work for social justice, to join with others in healing a hurting world. 

An innovative community in which all aspects of how we come together in community will be open for discussion and consideration. 

Keyn yehi ratzon - may this be God’s will.
