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.

Neshama Carlebach is an award-winning singer, songwriter and educator who has performed and taught in cities around the world.  A six-time entrant in the Grammy Awards, Neshama has sold over one million records, making her one of today’s best-selling Jewish artists in the world.   Neshama is currently on tour sharing her greatest hits as well as new music from her tenth and most recent release, Believe.

Cast your vote in the World Zionist Congress Election

Your vote is needed in the World Zionist Congress election. You can help determine the future direction of $1 billion in allocations and the services that those funds will buy from the Jewish Agency, the Jewish National Fund and the World Zionist Organization. Much of this money actually comes from American Jews.  
This election gives American Jews an opportunity to reflect their values in determining how some of that money is spent—like supporting Conservative Jewish organizations in Israel.

Online Voting Is Now Open Until March 11, 2020
