Torah – Learning
Jewish learning is intrinsic to Jewish life. Every observance, committee meeting and celebration at Shir Tikvah offers our community learning opportunities. Here, our learning experience is multigenerational and highly individualized. Our programs are designed to help each congregant connect to Judaism in a positive and lasting way.
