At Temple Shir Tikva, we believe that everyone is made B’Tzelem Elohim—in the image of God.

That racial justice is a Jewish value.

That we are mandated to engage in the work of tikkun olam—repairing the world.

That we are not free until all of us are free.

That we must aspire to be Or Lagoyim—a light amongst the nations.

At Temple Shir Tikva, our education program is built on the values of: joy, community, tikkun olam, curiosity, gemilut chasadim.

Hineini means

Here I am.

I’m here.

I matter.

Showing up matters.

How we show up matters.

Why we show up matters.
