Welcome to Beth Tikvah Congregation!

Thank you for visiting the Beth Tikvah Congregation website! We are a dynamic, warm, and friendly Reform Jewish congregation located in the Northwest Chicago Suburbs where all are welcome. At Beth Tikvah Congregation (BTC) relationships matter most. Beth Tikvah Congregation is best known for its inclusive, involved, caring and compassionate community; for its excellent clergy, staff and lay leadership; for its phenomenal lay chairs; and for the overall positive difference BTC makes in our members’ lives.

At Beth Tikvah Congregation, we are dedicated to Jewish values and the pursuit of Holiness through engaging worship, joyous celebration of holidays and lifecycle events and by caring for one another. At the same time, we are committed to education for all ages, to Tikkun Olam (bettering our world), welcoming interfaith families, supporting interfaith relations, and furthering connections to the State of Israel, to Jewish summer camp, and so much more!

Whether you are new to the area, new to Jewish life, or a long-time veteran...whatever your background, level of observance, age, relationship status, sexual orientation, or gender identity... we are grateful for your interest in Beth Tikvah Congregation. We invite you to contact our Rabbi, Taron Tachman, take a tour of BTC, join us for Friday night Shabbat Services, or an upcoming program. We look forward to meeting you soon!
