How to get involved!

Temple Beth Tikvah offers so many opportunities to volunteer.  Join a committee, organize a collection drive, or help out at a program.  The choice is yours!

Temple Committees:

  • Advocacy & Activism Committee
    This committee will explore timely social justice issues through a Jewish lens and determine the best ways for TBT to address them.
  • Adult Education Committee
    TBT recognizes the importance of education for our adult congregants and works to provide opportunities for self-improvement, personal growth and continuing Jewish education. 
  • Caring Community
    The Caring Community assists TBT members during times of illness or loss by creating care packages, delivering food, and offering emotional support.
  • Finance
    The Finance Committee makes a detailed estimate of the income and operating expenses for the ensuing year, submits an annual budget for the coming year and supervises the audit or compilation of the accounts of the Congregation. 
  • Fundraising Committee
    In conjunction with temple staff, the Fundraising Committee coordinates an annual fundraising campaign to assist in supporting temple financial needs.
