Congregation P'nai Tikvah
9700 Hillpointe Rd. | Services 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

Yom Kippur 5781

Strange yet familiar
We approach this Day of At-One-Ment
Apart yet together
Recalling our missed marks
With hope, yet in awe
We gather in prayer
Zooming across the miles; yet not leaving home
Let our fasts have meaning
Hear our pleas, our viddui, our Kol Nidrei
Press unmute
