Shir Tikvah offers an alternative for families seeking a Jewish community that reflects their secular, cultural approach to their Jewish identity, one that is human-centered rather than God-centered.
Non-traditional families are welcome, including intermarried couples and the GLBT community. Members are encouraged to participate fully and develop leadership roles within the congregation.
Humanistic Judaism values the diversity within the Jewish community. Holidays and life-cycle events offer opportunities for celebration and community.
Adult classes are offered for those interested in learning more about Jewish identity from a humanistic, cultural perspective.
Family programs are emphasized, with Family Shabbat dinners, and a weekly Sunday School program.
Bar and Bat-Mitzvah programs are also offered.
Information meetings are held monthly on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30 pm.
