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.
