Tikvat Israel Congregation

A Friendly, Participatory, Egalitarian Conservative Synagogue in Rockville, MD

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.
