Beit Tikvah is a warm, diverse, and egalitarian Reconstructionist Jewish congregation located in Roland Park in Baltimore, Maryland. We take a progressive approach to Jewish life, integrating a deep respect for traditional Judaism with the insights of contemporary life. Beit Tikvah welcomes interfaith families, couples, and individuals of all races, heritages, ethnicities and sexual orientations. Our building, bima (ark podium) and facilities are wheelchair accessible. The building (Corner Community Center) is also home to five congregations, leading to many interfaith activities.
Once a month Shabbat morning pre-school program for ages 2-5 with parent education component. For enrollment and program information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
This program is funded in part by a grant from the Jewish Education Enhancement Projects Fund of the Macks Center for Jewish Education.
This lively and nurturing program will teach practices to enhance Shabbat and holidays through: music and movement, stories, cooking and hands-on art projects.
Parents will meet to discuss topics that include introducing Jewish ideals and perspectives on how to live a life of goodness, and demonstrating to parents that Judaism is a beautiful and valuable aspect of shaping caring ,ethical lives for their children. Mixed faith households are encouraged to enroll.
