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

Avinu Malkenu

Avinu Malkenu,
There are things we have done,
and things we have left undone
where we have missed the mark.

Please forgive us for our complacency
as we watch our planet and its inhabitants 
suffer through drought, floods, fires,
and stifling heat;
as we witness people in need
Including fleeing refugees;
as we hear in our country

ugly vitriol between opposing
points of view.

Help us as individuals
and as a community
to work for the better,
and not just wring our hands.
Please forgive us.

This pandemic has made us even more appreciative of our family,
friends and community.
We take nothing for granted.

We ask our brothers and sisters 
how we can make amends. 
We are willing to speak,
to act,
to return,
to make teshuvah.
Help us to forgive those
who have wronged us.
Let us be gracious and
understanding, just as
You, our Wellspring
are with us.

We are grateful to gather
in person and on zoom
as we pray the familiar prayers
and the melodies stir our souls.

Avinu Malkenu,
may we be sealed for a good year.

"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.


NEW Community Class Offerings

Free Community Course Starts Next Week: Next Thursday, September 2, we launch our latest community course, which is free and open to all

Do We Really Die?

Many Jews have had near-death experiences (NDEs) and/or chronic critical illness, spiritual transformations, or out of body experiences. This course offers the Jewish perspective on all of these life-altering experiences.

Join AJRCA co-founder Rabbi Stephen Robbins, PsyD, DDw, who has had eight NDEs as well as chronic medical conditions and multiple surgeries, and will share both from his personal experience, and his education, the unique Judaic wisdom in both coping and understanding these events.

Fortune Cookies and 2021
