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.

Daily Minyan
7:30 pm – Daily Ma’ariv And Community Check- In
Each night (Sunday – Thursday) at 7:30 pm, we will have an on-line ma’ariv service and community check-in. We will read the names on our yartzeit list and recite Mourner’s Kaddish at each service, as long as we have 10 people who are signed in – with video and sound. We are calling pages from Siddur Sim Shalom (either pocket version or full size blue/grey Shabbat, Festivals and Weekdays). If you don’t have one, you may request PDF versions of the Siddur Sim Shalom for Weekdays and download them. Please note that the pagination will be different but the prayers will be the same.
