High Holidays 5775/2014

The High Holy Days this year will be particularly special with our new rabbi, Rabbi Hannah Orden leading our holy day services for the first time. The Rabbi, joined by The CBH Singers and Steve Wetter, our lay cantor and  the High Holy Day committee have been working to bring  you the most wonderful experience we can so that we can celebrate the new year and our renewal as individuals and as a community.  

Our goal is to create a meaningful, emotionally and intellectually satisfying experience that will bring us closer to each other in our community, and also to the history, traditions and values we share with Jews around the world.  More information and links to registration pages...

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. Watch for more details coming soon.
