Community

What do you want from your kehillah  (community)? We could use your insights and ideas.

In this community, we are all needed. Volunteers keep Shir Tikvah running. Giving a few hours of your time here and there not only strengthens our community, it’s a fun and easy way to get to know others here. As you attend services and events, please ask questions of anyone you see in kitchen, moving furniture or greeting folks at the door.

Need a phone number or email address? See your member directory for contact information or ask Amelia Schroth for help accessing your member page.
