A House of Worship That Feels Like Home

Warm and welcoming, Temple Tikvah is a spiritual home for Jews of all backgrounds.  We strive to be a warm and welcoming place to families and singles, seniors and children alike.  We welcome Jews by choice, Jews of all races and sexual orientations and gender identities, including non-Jewish spouses and partners.

When two dynamic congregations came together in 2008, Temple Tikvah was born. Temple Emanuel of New Hyde Park and Temple Israel of Jamaica combined forces to create a spiritual center filled with joy, inspiration, and hope. Our congregation hails from Queens as well as Nassau County. We are truly a melting pot of diversity!

Our tikvah — hope — runs deep. Our hope guides us in everything we do, especially our hope for an endless caring community that is committed to strong connections to our faith and with each other.

Book of Remembrance

          In memory of all those in our community who have passed.

Simkhat Torah Hakafah 

          A "hakafah" is a circuit of dancing when the Torah is carried around the                               congregation. Since Covid, we might not be able to dance with the Torah in                         person, but we were able to send in videos of us dancing in celebration of Simkhat            Torah.


L'Shana Tova - Wishing everyone a sweet New Year!
