A Friendly, Participatory, and Egalitarian Conservative Synagogue in Rockville, MD
At Tikvat Israel we appreciate the great diversity of backgrounds that make up the Jewish community today.
Our congregation includes not only people steeped in Jewish experience and training, but also those just discovering the beauty and richness of Judaism. Some come from traditional religious backgrounds; others grew up in non-observant homes. Some are Jews by choice; others are part of interfaith families.
Together we are united in the common desire to belong to a congregation where community means friendship, where religious practice means spiritual inspiration, and where education for young and old means personal growth and discovery.
Tikvat Israel is a place where you and your family will become enriched through friendship, prayer, and mitzvot.
This year's Cantor's Concert at Tikvat Israel delivered 90 minutes of musical and literary fun, tying together beautiful music and touching personal stories delivered by a half dozen story tellers. Titled "Tales of the Unleavened," the March 30 show was orchestrated by Cantor Rochelle Helzner. More than 300 individuals attended.
