Worship

All Events

 

Our doors are open to all who seek to worship, learn and serve the community.

Services at  Beth Tikvah Congregation are a learning experience.  During the service members of the Minyan are encouraged to raise their hand if they have a question regarding the structure of the service, the meaning of a prayer, the interpretation of the Torah portion or a comment regarding the practice of Judaism.

Our goal is to broaden the understanding of Judaism.  And through better understanding establish each individual’s relationship with God. Join us to experience our interactive service. Come learn with us.

Worship is very important to us at Beth Tikvah Congregation (BTC). We believe that - through prayer - we can improve ourselves, our relationships with each other, and with God. Through prayer we give voice to the longings in our hearts. We find comfort, inspiration, meaning, guidance and hope through prayer, and we reconnect with our most sacred values and ideals.

Our prayer book, Mishkan T’filah, asserts that “each of us enters this sanctuary with a different need,” and at BTC we strive to create worship that is engaging, accessible and relevant. Attending services, or viewing them online, you will immediately notice that our services include joyous, uplifting music, inspirational sermons, celebrations of life cycle events, time for reflection and meditation, as well as shared laughter. Following each worship service, the congregation typically gathers together to enjoy delicious desserts and refreshments each other’s company (called Oneg).

Our prayer services include both Hebrew and English in the form of prayers, readings, and songs; most everything that appears in Hebrew is both translated and transliterated in the prayer book. 

The best way to find out more is to experience our worship. We are always delighted to have guests and long-time members worship with us and we want you to feel comfortable, included, and attuned to what is happening. Please view our congregational calendar for worship dates and times.

Information about attending our worship services for the first time can be found here. Also, if you are unable to attend in-person, you can join us weekly in prayer online through our live streaming.
