Upcoming Services

Prayer services at Shir Tikvah are meant to help us open our hearts and find comfort in the company of friends, family, community, and with God. We come to services not only seeking comfort; we also come to reaffirm the prophetic vision God has for the world - that the world is not as it should be and that Shabbat is a moment in time to reconnect with that central purpose; to renew our faith and our desire to work to transform the world, to make it more whole and more holy. Our services are conducted in English and Hebrew, led by different combinations of our rabbis, music leaders, and congregants.

Morning Minyan

Morning Minyan, held on Thursdays from 7:45-8:45 am, is an intimate group that gathers for a reflective service. It is part prayer, part study, and it is always full of engaging conversations. B’nei Mitzvah students read Torah at minyan the week of their B’nei Mitzvah.


Worship services are open to all and are accessible in many ways:
  • The building has a handicap accessible entrance on Girard Avenue. Both the sanctuary and handicap accessible restrooms are located on the main floor (additional floors are not yet fully accessible, however services and the Oneg Shabbat (reception) are always held on the main floor).
  • ASL interpretation is available with a 10 day advance notice. We’re happy to arrange this as we have wonderful interpreters who, when possible, even make the Hebrew words accessible. We also have audio devices for those who need volume amplification.
  • We have large-print prayer books. These can be found on our bookshelves outside of the sanctuary.
  • Children are welcome at Shir Tikvah. They are invited to stay in services and we have busy-bags for those who may require them. We understand that the rhythm of a child’s life at any given moment may not match the “traditional decorum” of services. We prefer to welcome families as they are, even when the little ones are challenged by silence. 
  • We cater to non-Hebrew speakers and/or readers too. Our prayer book, Mishkan T’filah, is fully transliterated and translated. It also includes alternative readings throughout to make the themes of the prayers flexible and accessible.
