Kehillat Tikvah: A Jewish Community of Hope in Jackson HeightsKehillat Tikvah: A Jewish Community of Hope is a congregation of individuals and families who seek to learn, explore, and sustain the teachings and practices of egalitarian Judaism from a shared local neighborhood base in Queens.
We are engaged in an active and respectful dialogue with each other from our various personal backgrounds and perspectives, as well as with Jewish traditions across the denominational spectrum. We accept the challenges of Brit / Covenant in developing our individual and collective commitments to Jewish life, thought and action.
Our vision of Judaism is inclusive of diverse personal orientations, lifestyles and family structures. We are committed to the full and equal participation of women and men in Jewish life; and we affirm the Jewishness of children who are raised as Jews by at least one Jewish parent, whether father or mother. We welcome and honor the involvement of the non-Jewish parents and other relatives in raising Jewish children, even as we understand that these individuals may or may not be oriented toward a Jewish spiritual path themselves.
