Congregation P'nai Tikvah
9700 Hillpointe Rd. | Shabbat Services Via Zoom are 1st & 3rd Fridays of each month @7:30pm

“Whatever the faiths you have known or the flags of your heritage, you are welcome here. Whatever the circumstances of your life and whomever you love, you are welcome here.

Whether you ran in here today on little feet, or ambled, or strolled, or rolled in, you are welcome here.

Whether you lean to the right or to the left, or like it somewhere in the middle; whether you are a believer or a questioner, or a questioning believer, you are welcome to this makom shalom, this place of peace, joy, and hope, Congregation P’nai Tikvah…”

(Based on a greeting used by Rev. Kevin Tarsa, shared by Rabbi Chava Bahle, and further refined by Rabbi Yocheved Mintz)

Community Prayer

From Loss to Hope

Tisha B’Av to Tu B’Av.

Loss and reaching out to God for healing. We focus on someone we love.

Meditation is transforming.

Focusing on our parents, children,

congregation family,

we empty our minds of negativity

and concentrate love, health, and prosperity

to those we love.

Honor our mothers and fathers,

our neighbors, children, friends.

We hold them in the sacred space,

Your hand, our heart.

We thank You for giving us

the people in our lives.

We are praying every day.

We are healing every day.

"iEngage: Foundations for a New Relationship" Classes with Rabbi Jamie

Classes with Rabbi Jamie

iEngage:  Foundations for a New Relationship

Join us for Engaging Israel: Foundations for a New Relationship, an exploration of the significance of Israel for Jewish life.  Engaging Israel is a series of nine lectures and conversations with scholars from the Shalom Hartman Institute that responds to growing feelings of disenchantment and disinterest toward Israel among an ever-increasing number of Jews worldwide by creating a new narrative regarding the significance of Israel for Jewish life. Lecture and discussion participants include Rabbi Dr. Donniel Hartman, Dr. Tal Becker, Yossi Klein-Halevi, Rabbi Dr. Rachel Sabath Beit-Halachmi, Prof. Gil Troy and others.  This class will be taught online using the video modules followed by live, interactive group discussion.

Roz Tessler and Harriet Bernstein awarded Honorable Menschen Award 2021

Honorable Menschen

We are sorry to report that the two Jersey girls, Roz Tessler and Harriet Bernstein, are moving back to their home state. They have been such a huge part of Congregation P’nai Tikvah for decades. When we had garage sales, those two ladies worked hard in the heat of summer to make the sales a success. When the board needed another member, Roz stepped up to the plate and, with her sweet smile and positive attitude, did what was needed to help our little shul grow and thrive. When a bunch of adults got it into their keppies that they wanted to become a bar/bat mitzvah, who was it who tutored them until they were able to read Hebrew? Roz, of course! In addition to all of this, for several years Roz took on the delicate job of awarding High Holiday aliyot to congregants, a job done with sensitivity and talent. We have been together through  joy and sorrows, and we have each come out of it closer and wiser. 


We will greatly miss Roz and Harriet, but not as much as the feral cats who were tenderly cared for by them. (Don’t worry…the neighbors will take over their care.) In gratitude for their many years of congregational service, the board of CPT awards two lifetime honorary memberships to our beloved friends. We look forward to seeing you on Zoom! We wish these two lovely sisters good health and nachas! 

CPT Shoe Drive

Congregation P’nai Tikvah Shoe Drive Mitzvah Project

Congregation P’nai Tikvah is having a fundraiser collecting gently used shoes benefitting both CPT and underserved nations as recipients of the donated shoes.  All who can participate, hurray!!  Please clean out your closets and donate any shoes, sneakers, boots, recreational shoes, high heels and children’s shoes.  All types of shoes are needed as long as they are gently used, meaning they must be in wearable condition.  We have a goal of 250 pairs of shoes to qualify for the funding.  Ideally, we are looking for each participant to donate 25 pairs of shoes.  Please feel free to collect from your friends and neighbors living in the local area.  If a participant chooses to collect outside their immediate area, they will have to pay for their own shipping.

East Cost Florida participants:

Fortune Cookies and 2021

Parashat Vayihi, 2021 Last Thursday night was Christmas Eve and like many Jews around the world, I celebrated with take-out Chinese food and Kung Pao Kosher Comedy.  The garlic eggplant and moshu vegetables were delicious but the fortune cookies were extraordinary. ...
