Members of Temple Beth Tikvah are blessed to have a Rabbinic leader that cares deeply about her temple community. Has regard for our individual well-being. And endeavors to help us satisfy our spiritual selves.

Temple members that sit on the board of directors, chair committees and organize interest groups, do so for the benefit of us all. And the love of the Jewish experience. They bring us together, enable us to connect and encourage us to engage.
