Anshe Tikvah is unique congregation as we offer an environment where everyone’s voice is heard and our innovative membership model can meet everyone’s needs.  

By coming to any of our services, you are a member of our congregation. And because you are important to us, we want to bring you closer...

Take one step closer… because there is a safe space place here for you where friends are waiting to be made, new ideas are waiting to be explored, and deepest prayers are waiting to be whispered. Time spent with us builds bonds of compassion, connection, and kindness. And there is so much to do at Anshe Tikvah: from mahjong, poker, movie nights, Torah study, and programs for self-exploration and growth.  We have progressive dinners, evenings of comedy, theatre and dancing and so much more. At Anshe Tikvah we entreat, explore, and evolve. And we’re just not complete until you join us too...

Draw closer still… so that we can celebrate each other’s joys, console each other’s heartaches. As a valued member here, you can call upon Rabbi Jury to provide a supportive context from which your important life cycle events gain meaning. At festive times, such as weddings, baby naming, Bar/Bat Mitzvah events, etc., and sorrowful times, such as funeral services and dedications, you need not celebrate or mourn alone. Call Anshe Tikvah for supportive pastoral care, and for a tzadakah donation, Rabbi Jury will guide you through your life-cycle events with wisdom and sensitivity.

Come change the world with us!

We are a caring community of learners dedicated to the living practice of relevant, dynamic and Progressive Judaism which stresses the all-embracing character of Judaism and the Jewish people through Tikkun Olam, the freedom of Jewish self-expression and life long learning.

We believe that a living congregation must  experience directly the joys and responsibilities of Jewish life.   Our tradition teaches us that there are many pathways to holiness and at Anshe Tikvah we recognize that each and every person follows their own holy path.  Judaism is a way of life that  offers us personal and group fulfillment, not only in  formal worship, but in all of our experiences. We seek to sanctify time through the joyful celebration of life, not only in the congregation, but in the home and in our daily interactions.  Our job, as a community, is to support each other as we strive to grow spiritually, socially, educationally and culturally.

Thank you for your interest in Anshe Tikvah.

More than the Jewish People have kept Shabbat, it is Shabbat that has kept the Jewish People.
