Tikvat Israel Congregation

A Conservative Synagogue in Rockville, MD

Welcome to Tikvat Israel

A Friendly, Participatory and Egalitarian Conservative Synagogue in Rockville, Maryland

Tikvat Israel’s congregants are eager to learn, unpretentious, broad-minded, caring and creative. Some are steeped in Jewish learning; others are discovering the beauty and richness of Judaism. Some come from traditional religious backgrounds; others grew up in non-observant homes. Some are Jews by choice; others are part of interfaith families.

Together we are united in the common desire to belong to a congregation where community means friendship, religious practice means spiritual inspiration and young and old alike are united in their search for personal growth and discovery.

Whether you are a guest, newcomer or simply curious about our community, we invite you to come visit and see what we’re all about.


Tikvat Israel Congregation is a place where you and your family will become enriched through friendship, prayer and mitzvot.
