Worship

Temple Tikvah Rabbi Randy TorahWorship is a time to rest, rejoice, and reconnect with your inner self and with your community. Our worship style is eclectic, as we strive to create an inclusive community, welcoming all ages, backgrounds, and needs. Join Rabbi Randy and Cantor Guy for Shabbat evening services that will infuse you with the joy of welcoming the Sabbath. Services are held regularly at 8:00 p.m., except for the second Friday of each month, when a Family Shabbat service begins at 7:30 p.m. We use the new Mishkan T’filah prayer book with the service in English and Hebrew. All Hebrew selections are transliterated, so no one is left out.

Music is an integral part of the worship experience. Our musical style ranges from folk to majestic. From time to time, our volunteer choir enhances services. In addition to our regular Friday night services, we conduct services that appeal to specific groups, such as Tot Shabbat,  Family Services, and others. See our monthly calendar for specific dates and times of Shabbat, holiday, and festival services.

Tot Shabbat

Temple Tikvah Tot Shabbat

Tot Shabbat is a brief, lively service filled with songs, stories, and prayer  specifically designed to appeal to young children. Our Tot Shabbat services are held every fourth Friday of the month at 6:30 p.m.

Due to popular demand, Tot Shabbat has been added to our Saturday morning programming and includes holiday workshops. These workshops are run by our Early Childhood Education Director, Nuccia Hernan, and are designed to help the very young in our community become familiar with the symbols, songs, stories, and prayers. Children participate with their parents, which helps establish the connection of religion, holidays, and family.

Our workshops are open to children ranging from the ages of 2 to 8 years old and are free of charge. We urge you to invite other young families who also wish to learn and participate in these activities. These activities are also an enjoyable way for grandparents to spend a morning with their grandchildren.
