Shalom and Welcome to Congregation Beit Tikva

Congregation Beit Tikva is a spiritual, harmonious congregation, sharing Jewish values in the Reform tradition. We teach and practice Judaism, seeking joy and commitment through education, mitzvot, tzedakah and ahavat Yisrael. We are respectful of diverse opinions and are welcoming to all.

Our Services

We hold Friday evening services at 7:00 pm, at our synagogue, located at 2230 Old Pecos Trail. Visitors are always welcome.

At Congregation Beit Tikva we use the new Siddur (prayer book), Mishkan T’filah. It offers a balance of creativity and beauty, theology and purpose. This prayer book provides a true translation of Hebrew passages instead of interpretive translations. It also has a full transliteration of all Hebrew prayers, along with commentaries and background information. The Siddur includes an extensive selection of musical texts, recognizing that a “singing congregation” is far more common than a generation ago. It is designed to make worship services more participatory, and provides opportunities for our rabbis and cantor to engage the congregation more fully in the service.

We ensure that women and men have equal roles and responsibilities, and we incorporate more Hebrew into our services than many Reform congregations. We include a reading from the Torah at Shabbat evening services, as well as a Davar Torah most Friday nights.

Our vibrant community recognizes that the source of our strength and joy lies in the warm and enthusiastic people who make up our congregation. We are proud to include people of every age, and from a very broad range of lifestyles and backgrounds.

Beit Tikva is often proud to host visitors from around the world at our Friday night and High Holy Days services. The hospitality of our members has earned us our reputation of being the warm, friendly, and comfortable Reform Congregation in Santa Fe.

Jewish Visitors to Santa Fe

There are many visitors who come to Santa Fe. We are always excited to welcome them, asking where they came from and what brought them here.

As a small congregation, there is always time to hear their stories at the end of services, and ask questions about their own synagogues at home. Sharing their stories often brings us to family connections that remind us of how we are all related! And, at the end of the evening, there is always a fun-filled, delicious oneg.
