Welcome to Beth Hatikvah. Beth Hatikvah means House of Hope. We’re glad you found us.
We are a Reform Jewish house of prayer, with participatory, engaging services for Shabbat and holidays.
We are a house of welcome for all kinds of Jews. For Jews by Choice and Jews by Birth. For LGBTQIA Jews. For Jews of Color. For all kinds of Jewish families and for individuals. For Jews who are searching for deep engagement and for Jews who have been away for a while.
We are a house of study, of seeking and questioning, at all ages and all stages. We learn from each other and honor all our voices. Our children learn here in our house, and in the wider world. Adults do too. We are never finished learning.
We are a house of justice, meeting Jews of all abilities where they are at. We prioritize access to Judaism for all. We strive to make the world a better place.
We are a house of wholeness, and we value people over money. Members who are able to do so contribute more, so that we never turn away a Jew who cannot afford membership. Members who volunteer time are of equal importance to our community.
We are a house of rejoicing, celebrating Shabbat, holidays, and lifecycle events with our entire community.
We are a house of compassion, making sure that all of our members are supported and connected with resources through the challenges and sorrows of life.
More than anything, we are a house of hope. We are here to elevate the souls of our community, to connect to the rhythms of Jewish time, and to delight in the presence of the Divine.
Welcome to Beth Hatikvah, our house of hope. We invite you to make it your house too.
Do you like meeting new people? Talking on the phone? Meeting for coffee (when we can)? Encouraging others to participate in our community?
Then we’ve got a mitzvah for you!
We need one or more people to:
- Give new members a call, text, or email
- Thank people for taking part in our community
- Act as a friend or Shabbat dinner matchmaker
- Let people know about our upcoming activities
- Find out the interests of members or what volunteer work they’d be interested in
Forming bonds and friendships within a community is what binds us together and creates a strong foundation.
If you’d like to help us connect and stay connected, please email us.
Did you know you can shop on Amazon and support CBH at the same time?

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.
