Tikvat Israel Congregation Rockville MD

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

Welcome to Tikvat Israel

A Friendly, Participatory and Egalitarian Conservative Synagogue in Rockville, Maryland
Where everyone has something to teach and everyone has something to learn


Tikvat Israel’s congregants are caring, creative, broad-minded, unpretentious, and eager to learn. 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.

Shabbat Times


In partnership with Kehilat Pardes in Aspen Hill, Tikvat Israel works to maintain an Eruv around the community with the help of volunteers from the membership. The Eruv is under the supervision of Rabbi Uri Topolosky, as advised by Rabbi Yaakov Love, a Dayan in Passaic, NJ. The Eruv is checked every week.
