“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)

Sell you Chumetz!
As part of preparing for Passover, it is customary to get rid of all Chametz (leaven). Traditionally the Chametz may be destroyed or given to a food bank before Pesach begins. Another method of handling this is Mechirat Chametz: The selling of the Chametz. Locking your Chametz away and giving a local observant rabbi this form, signed by you, is an easy way of observing this legal tradition.
Click HERE to download your form. The form must be received by April 5, 2020.

“The Small Things”
by Virtual Prayer Committee
Virtual Prayer for March 25 – 31, 2020 | Adar 29 – Nissan 6, 5780
They seemed so mundane and they faded into my day like white noise,
a decaf mocha at Starbucks,
a crowded check-out stand after work,
throwing my sweaty clothes in my locker at the gym…
And now, I so look forward to when these small delights will return,
and to champagne, dark chocolate truffles, and unicorn sparkles.
And, but, also, I have found my community on the Brady Bunch squares of Zoom.
Faces I haven’t seen for years are now a part of my weekly landscape,
and I am reunited with friends who mean so much to me.
May we appreciate the small things for they are more than they seem.

Honoring Justice Elissa Cadish and Renowned Architect Jon Sparer
Dear Friends of P’nai Tikvah,
We are honored to present our Tribute Book honoring Supreme Court Justice Elissa Cadish and Renowned architect Jon Sparer. As you browse this beautiful book, please take note of all the wonderful friends and family of Elissa, Jon Sparer, and Congregation P’nai Tikvah.
We were intending to include a video of the honorees accepting their tzedek awards, but complications caused by the unfortunate arrival of the Coronavirus, aka COVID-19, there will be a delay in its transmittal. When it is completed, we will send it out to all of you. In the meantime, here is a link to a video of our very first virtual Friday night service, held just this week. Congregant sharing on this reminds us that while we have individual challenges a community can help sustain us. We have rapidly built ways of continuing to connect including contacting each congregant and other members of the community weekly by phone to check on their welfare. You are welcome to join the P’nai Tikvah family in our online services and programming.
We hope you enjoy reading this beautiful book that is filled with love and good wishes for our terrific honorees. We are grateful to have you all as members of our extended family and look forward to seeing all of you as soon as it is safe to do so. Stay healthy.
Thank you again for your generous support of Congregation P’nai Tikvah.

CPT Jewlicious Learners Prepare for Purim Spiel!
Jewlicious Learners Prepare for Purim Speil – Jewlicious Learning Monday March 2nd was all about PURIM!!! We rolled dough, cut out circles, filled with strawberry, cherry or poppy seed (and of course chocolate chips) and carefully pinched corners to make the Hamantaschen. While the lovely aroma of baking filled the kitchen, the class refreshed their memories and learned even more about this holiday, the Purim Megillah, Shalach Monat and rehearsed a play for Chag Purim.
Please RSVP to attend our Purim Celebration Monday night and enjoy a “Yiddisha” play presented by the Jewlicious Learners.
There are many ways to be a part of our wonderful P’nai Tikvah Family and meet new friends!
Kehillah is more than a gathering of people, translated as community or congregation, it reflects our obligations to each other and the entire Jewish community.

“From Age-ing to Sage-ing”
Based on the work on “Eldering” by the late
Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, z’l
and Debby and Barry Barkan.
This course is intended to give participants some of the tools for purposefully participating in their own individual spiritual development as they journey toward life’s completion.
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...
