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.

The focus was on mishpachah (family) at the Women’s Network membership tea on Oct. 26 in the shul’s Flax Library, where 30 participants shared the meaning behind a carefully selected family photo. The event’s purpose, said Women’s Network coordinator Rebecca Salon, was to “reconnect us all to a piece of our heritage and/or legacy.” Shown in photo is Fortuna Scheige. The afternoon event, which included fresh fruit and other snacks, kicked off a full year of activities for the TI Women’s Network.
