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)

Join us for a brief exploration of Tisha B’Av and Tisha B’Av  the major day of communal mourning and its spiritual elements.

R.S.V.P. via Evite HERE! 

Saturday evening, August 1st, after celebrating  Havdalah service, members of P’Nai Tikvah are invited to a zoom call for a special program designed to transport participants from the grief of Tisha B’Av to the joy of Tu B’Av. The program starts with a healing service that includes readings from Lamentations, poetry, prayers, music, and meditations. The second half of the program focuses on cultivating self-love and culminated with a 5 minute meditation on our love for others. The program is developed and led by Ellen Royer, a member of the congregation, in consultation with the clergy. P’nai Tikvah encourages its membership to play an active role in creating programming for the congregation, and often engages in unique, interactive, spiritual  activities for holidays.

Community Prayer

Prayer for those who have become “Essential”

Kol hakavod* is not enough to thank all those who serve us selflessly.
The workers preparing our orders, the delivery drivers, the pharmacists,
cashiers, receptionists, grocery store clerks, the wait people.
The list is endless for those that assist us.
They are unsung heroes for these pandemic times.

 Please bless and protect them
And their families, HaShem.
We see them under their masks
and do not take them for granted,
As they risk all to serve all.

 We are physically isolated,
Yet these workers have held us together.
Let us be mindful, thankful, grateful.
Help us to demonstrate our gratitude,
And pay it forward. 

This pandemic has revealed our weaknesses,
But has also brought out our strengths.
Help us to make the most of our newly found awareness, Adonai,
As we care for others and others care for us.


 *All the honor.  Good job!

Prayer for those essential workers

Love is an action

This is Av

Dear G-d, you are with us
as we emerge from deep sorrow on the ninth of Av
to Love on Tu b'Av.
Maidens in white dancing in the moonlight,
seeking marriages,
as b'nei Israel enjoys the light of the full moon.
Man and woman,
Light and darkness,
people and Creator,
We are separate yet One.
We are commanded to love you,
the Source of Life.
By delving into Torah,
your vastness is revealed.
How do I love you, Adonai?
Being loving to others,
working for social justice.
preserving Your handiwork.
studying Torah,
We are feeding our connections to our Jewish heritage.
We marvel in the Wisdom and Beauty.
We may stumble, yet we are following Your path.
We dance to your melodies.
Love is an action.

Shabbat Inspiration – Choosing Living Judaism

Shabbat Inspiration – Choosing Living Judaism

This week as our online prayer group collected our thoughts, one of the undertones was the growing fear that the American Jewish community is under attack, that the times are changing, and that we need to take action to defend ourselves. Many of us are asking “Is this...
