Your Jewish Home on the Shoreline

Temple Beth Tikvah is a Reform Jewish congregation with a commitment to inclusion, diversity, inspiring worship, youth and adult education, and meaningful social justice activities. Established in 1977, we are conveniently located near I-95, in the heart of the New Haven – Old Saybrook shoreline of Connecticut.

TBT serves as the focus of Jewish community life on the shoreline. We are proud of our extensive programming for Jews of many backgrounds and at all the stages of life. We hope you will consider becoming an active participant in our vibrant Jewish community.
