Welcome to Congregation Beth Hatikvah

Forging a New Future for the Jewish Community on the Kitsap Peninsula

We are a warm, inviting congregation with plenty of musicality and spirituality. We offer adult education classes throughout the year, provide Jewish education for toddlers through teens, and have flexible and personalized B’nai Mitzvah preparation. All that, plus rockin’ Friday night Kabbalat Shabbat services and inspirational Saturday morning Torah services.

Join us on Thursday, February 25th at 7PM 

to hear the Megillah read by our Spiritual Leader Emily.

Subscribe to our E-news or email us for the Zoom link. 

Traditionally, we wear costumes and masks when we gather at CBH to hear the Megillah being read. 

This year will be masks only!!
well… not ONLY 😉

Here is a link to a site that sells Purim masks.

It is also traditional to help those less fortunate than ourselves during this time. Donate to a favorite charity. Safely bring food to a friend or organization. Contribute to the Misheberach Fund for Asher Hashash.

Looking for a family friendly Shabbat experience? 

We’ve moved our regular Shabbat service to 7:30 PM so families can join us for the “service before the service”.

Emily will be leading families in
song, prayer and a bisl of Torah. 

Perfect those who are in their jammies already.
