Shir Tikvah is an independent congregation on Portland’s Eastside. Our founders envisioned a participatory, learning community and we’ve been described in the press as “post-denominational”.

Like our ancestors, we grapple with the beauty and contradictions of our sacred texts to better understand our faith, our world and our place in it. Our supporters come from across the Jewish spectrum: gay, straight, Jew-by-birth, Jew-by-choice, atheist, devout believer. We welcome all who want to be part of our community.
