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, rich with tradition 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.
