Beth Tikvah
Beth Tikvah was founded in 1996, to meet the needs of the growing population in Westborough and the surrounding towns that desired a modern, progressive path to Judaism with a family feel. 

Our goal is to enrich Jewish life by providing for education, ritual,social growth, and community service, in a warm, welcoming atmosphere for all. 

Rabbi Michael Swarttz is our spiritual leader. Cindy Avergon is our Educational Coordinator. We have a regular schedule of services and all members of the community are invited to attend!
