Rabbi Abraham Isaac ha-Cohen Kook famously commented that we are to, “Renew the old and sanctify the new.” We take these words to heart when approaching tefillah (prayer). Our services reflect a deep commitment to honoring our tradition as well as an openness to the changing needs and character of our community.
At any Shaarey Tikvah service, you will find active joyful participation. Members of our community regularly lead services, read Torah, and chant the Haftorah. We invite you to join your voice with ours. Our Rabbi, Cantor, or one of our capable lay leaders would be happy to help you in reaching your goals for chanting Torah, Haftarah, or leading tefillah.
