Temple Kol Tikvah is an independent Reform congregation. We gather regularly as a community for joyous worship and learning, meaningful fellowship, energetic social action, and service to the greater community.
Our congregation is led by Rabbi Randy Kafka, and David Blocker is our Cantorial Soloist and Director of Education.
