Our History.



Rabbi Howard Shub

Allow me to introduce myself.  I’m Rabbi Howard Shub.  My background includes working with young Jews as a Hillel Director, working as a Probation/Parole Officer in Australia, directing a major Jewish educational program in Israel for young Jewish adults, & serving as a congregational Rabbi since 1988.

I am a Canadian by birth, & have earned degrees from Yeshiva University, Hebrew University, & The Jewish Theological Seminary, where I was ordained as a Rabbi.  Don’t let all the degrees, education, & experience intimidate you, I am here….for you.

A VISION FOR THE FUTURE

Here at Temple Beth Tikvah, we have initiated a number of new programs designed to enhance the lives of our wonderful congregants, as well as attracting new members.  We are looking for Jewish people of all ages, married & single, with & without children, affiliated & unaffiliated.  Our purpose is to widen the synagogue’s service base in order to attract & retain all Jewish individuals who are looking for a “second home”, a home where one is able to pursue Jewish interests in the social, educational, religious, cultural, & spiritual realm-all in a friendly & “Heimish” (warm) atmosphere.

In addition to having one of the area’s premier & award-winning Adult Jewish Education programs, Temple Beth Tikvah has expanded its Shabbat activities to appeal to both families & individuals who wish to learn more about the Shabbat service.

Watch for the myriad of activities that make Temple Beth Tikvah our second home & hopefully your second home. We invite you to become part of “Our Extended Family”.

We are offering more courses & programs as well as social activities in our beautiful synagogue. We welcome you to join us in what promises to be an exciting year of meaningful & fun activities at Temple Beth Tikvah.

Warmly,
Rabbi Howard M. Shub
