YOU’RE INVITED!

After a busy week, you will find Shabbat is a meaningful and spiritual experience. At Temple Beth Tikvah Shabbat is a time for you to join our community to and  disconnect from life’s distractions and reconnect with God, faith and one another.

From our family Shabbat services where our youth help lead our services to our musical Shabbat services where our community gathers to create a spiritually uplifting ambiance – TBT is about nourishing your soul. Services are held in the sanctuary. At times, special services are held on our patio as we pray under the stars. We sponsor community dinners and encourage families to bring members and Shabbat into their homes. We light candles in the park and we gather for challah and Kiddush on campouts.

Temple Beth Tikvah is where you can explore your personal connection to the infinite in many ways. On Shabbat mornings we have plenty of offerings from torah study, morning hikes, family services in our Early Childhood Learning Center or meditation Shabbats.

THIS WEEK’S SHABBAT

This Week’s Torah Reading: B’reishit – This week we enter the beginning of a brand new cycle of Torah reading with a parashah that has become controversial in today’s political climate: B’reishit (in the beginning). The creation of the world is described beautifully and poetically in the Torah, but in our world where we’re always trying to figure out what’s true and what’s false, people seem to get stuck on this first portion of Genesis.

On Saturday, February 25th, drop off the kids from 4-8PM for a fun evening of dinner, crafts, a movie and havdallah services. Go on a date, or join us for some special Wine Time.
