Congregation Beth Hatikvah


With our schedule scrambled a bit by Passover and Solidarity Shabbat, we’ll combine Social Action Shabbat this month with our Easy Shabbat celebration.  And we’ll have the special joy of singing along at dinner with our bar mitzvah, Jonathan Bear, who’ll join Rabbi Orden and Jim Schachter in leading us in song and prayer. Come learn the special Tikkun Olam song we’ve begun singing at Religious School on Social Action Shabbats.  Sign up now by hitting the easy shabbat button on the right of this page.


At CBH, we don’t care much for fluff or flash, and we’re anything but fancy. But our warm, diverse congregation will feed your soul and welcome you like family. Our services are lively yet deeply spiritual, richly traditional yet refreshingly relevant.

Congregation Beth Hatikvah is located at the intersection of Union, Morris, Somerset, and Essex Counties. We think we're building something special here — a progressive community of committed, engaged people, who come together from different Jewish backgrounds and experiences, different traditions, different races, sexual orientation, you name it — and who care about each other, their heritage, and their world.  More about CBH...


Rabbi Hannah Orden became our Spiritual Leader on August 1, 2014. The Congregation welcomed her with a series of spiritual, and fun, programming over the course of the weekend. 

Rabbi Orden has been the rabbi for Temple B’nai Israel in Laconia, New Hampshire since 2009.  She also serves as adjunct faculty for Hebrew College in Newton, Massachusetts where she earned her Rabbinic Ordination and Master of Arts in Jewish Studies in June 2010.  She has an extensive background in Jewish education as well as a strong commitment to community building and social action.  She is a published writer, a chaplain for the Elder Service Plan of Boston, and has broad teaching experience both Jewishly and secularly. She is also well-versed in Reconstructionism. 

The entire CBH Community is looking forward to building its future with Rabbi Hannah Orden.
