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.
"Safe Realities and Fearsome Imaginings: Science Fiction, Judaism, and Religious Imagination" Congregation Beit Tikvah was founded over 30 years ago by members of the Baltimore Science Fiction Society. Join this monthly exploration of and tribute to our roots in both Judaism and Science Fiction. For the uninitiated this is a great way to be introduced to Science Fiction or Judaism.

Tikkun Leil Shavuot/Evening of Shavuot Study - "On Your Journey I Will Bless You"-- Personal Stories About Becoming a Jew or Coming Back to Jewish Life. Brief service, including Yiskor/Memorial prayers, followed by study.
On Shavuot we acknowledge that we became a people not only because of an Exodus from slavery but also because liberation teaches that we must matter to each other. Our members share their stories of "conversion," whether from another tradition or faith community, or from disconnection with Jewish heritage to active appreciation of it. Whether we were born into Jewish life or have journeyed to Judaism, we've all become Jews by choice. Come to listen, to learn and, if you want, to share.....
