Welcome Weekend for our New Rabbi

We're opening a new chapter in our community's history, and it's time to celebrate. We've got all sorts of great stuff planned for Rabbi Hannah Orden's first weekend:
Music, Music, Music: A special music Shabbat, Hannah's first service - Friday, August 1, 7:30 pm
Brain Food (and real food): Saturday the 2nd, Hannah will lead torah study (9 am) and, after cake and coffee, Life Long Learning (10 am). Both will focus on Moses, the first teacher of adult learner mentioned in our tradition. If you've never attended LLL, this would be a great time to check it out. It's like mental zumba dancing-mind-stretching and fun at the same time.
More Food and Schmooze: Brunch on Sunday the 3rd at 10 am. A chance to chat one-on-one with the rabbi (and the rest of us, too) RSVP to Cindy Wetter at
Music Under the Stars: Dinner & Live Music by the Pool, Sunday, August 3, 5:00 pm at the Fineman/Bozik home. Members and guests welcome at this lively, fun-filled evening. RSVP to ($36/person)


The Board of Trustees and the Members of Congregation Beth Hatikvah are pleased to announce that Rabbi Hannah Orden will become our Spiritual Leader on August 1, 2014.

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. Watch for more details coming soon. 


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...
