Our Vision & Mission

‚ÄčOur Vision

Congregation Shaarey Tikvah is an egalitarian Conservative congregation whose members are passionate about Judaism. By combining meaningful and joyful worship, serious Jewish learning, social action and compelling Shabbat and holiday experiences, we create a vibrant spiritual community.

Our Mission

  • To create an intimate, caring, welcoming congregation.
  • To maximize lay involvement in leading prayers, and in reading and teaching Torah.
  • To foster relationships among members, including across generations.
  • To be a community of learners devoted to a life-long exploration of Jewish texts, ideas, and values.
  • To transform life cycle events into opportunities for spiritual and educational enrichment.
  • To engage members in community service.

Our Strategic Plan

In 2010, Congregation Shaarey Tikvah underwent a strategic planning process with the assistance of Ukeles & Associates. The outcomes of the strategic plan are being implemented currently and will guide our overall strategic direction for the next 10 years. Please contact Martha Sivertson, our Executive Director, if you are interested in obtaining a copy of our strategic plan.

In 2016, Shaarey Tikvah begins  a new effort to evaluate results from the 2010 plan and formulate ideas for new strategies going forward.
