From Rabbi Cari and Cantor Beth Levin

Dear Friends,

When you walk into our sanctuary, you'll see these words on the opposite wall: "How good it is to dwell together." This phrase, from the Psalms, guides everything we do, because at Shir Tikvah we believe that life is richer and more meaningful when lived in community. Although it's possible to "do" Jewish alone, it's not the same kind of experience as when you share it with others— life's ups and downs, praying in a united voice even when you carry independent beliefs, working together to creating a more just and responsible society and world.   

That's what community means at Shir Tikvah. Hinei Ma Tov. How good it is to be together.

We look forward to getting to know you and you getting to know us. If you'd like to talk with us about about whether Shir Tikvah is right for you, please get in touch by email or call the office at 781-729-1263 to set up a time to talk. 

Kol Tov—wishes for all good things!

Rabbi Cari Bricklin-Small

“In Pirke Avot we read: The world rests on three pillars: learning (Torah), service of the heart (Avodah) and acts of lovingkindness (Gimilut Hasadim). Each day as an individual when I leave work I ask myself, have I learned something new today? Have I made time to connect to something bigger than myself? Have I acted out of love and compassion? As a rabbi I hope to help our community learn, serve, and love one another each day. I believe that in relationship to one another we have the opportunity to come in contact with something sacred.”

Beth Levin Cantor and Educator

“Creating connections is the core of my work at Temple Shir Tikvah. When we are present for ourselves and each other, the potential for meaningful encounters abound. I believe in the transformative power of community to better our lives. As Cantor/Educator, it is a great joy and privilege to be a doorway into the world of Jewish spirituality through song, prayer, study, and conversation. Temple Shir Tikvah is a great blessing in my life.”

Richard “Rim” Meirowitz Rabbi Emeritus

Joshua the son of Perachia would say: “Make for yourself a rabbi, acquire for yourself a friend, and judge each person on the side of merit.” For 17 years, the members of Shir Tikvah made Rabbi Rim our rabbi, acquired a special friend, and found much merit. In retirement, Rabbi Emeritus Rim and his wife, Anne,​ continue to hold a treasured place in the fabric of our community.

“I hope that students and their families will use the values learned from the Torah to guide their thinking about how to make the world a better place, both at home and in the greater community. Through innovative programming that values diverse learners and their families, we will study the Hebrew language and Jewish traditions in a way that is both meaningful and fun.”
