About Congregation P’nai Tikvah

P’nai Tikvah translates as “Faces of Hope.” Serving the broad Las Vegas Jewish Community (we have members from Henderson, Green Valley, Summerlin, North Las Vegas, and greater Las Vegas), Congregation P’nai Tikvah is a warm, welcoming spiritual home for all who are seeking a meaningful Jewish life—blending creativity and innovation with tradition.

With a foundation deriving practice from the progressive Reconstructionist and Renewal movements, Judaism is seen as an evolving civilization—a relevant, meaningful way of life that is rich with tradition—where the past has a vote, but not a veto.


Women’s Rituals to Support Times in Our Lives Today: Weddings, Adoption, Miscarriage, Fertility and Abortion

Join with the Congregation Beth Emek Sisterhood for an evening exploring women’s rituals to support the modern lives we lead today.  What is different today from the past that has led to the need for something new?  We will consider rituals for weddings, adoption, miscarriage, fertility and abortion.  How and why are these new rituals created and what is the thinking behind them?

When:  Thursday, October 19th, 2017

Where:  At a private home in San Ramon.  Ping me for the address and to RSVP.

Who:   This women’s evening is sponsored by the Beth Emek Sisterhood.  There is no charge to attend and you do not have to be a Beth Emek member.

Learning and discussion will be led by Jamie Hyams. Jamie is a third-year rabbinical student at the Academy of Jewish Religion in Los Angeles and she serves as the Rabbinic Intern at Congregation P’nai Tikvah in Las Vegas.
