Our Featured Member synagogue for December 2008 is Temple Shir Tikva, a Reform congregation in Wayland. We are pleased to recognize the synagogue in celebration of its 30th anniversary.
Temple Shir Tikva is a 30 year-old Reform Jewish Congregation, affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism, located on the historic Boston Post Road in the suburban setting of Wayland. We support a Religious School of over 450 children. Congregants have grown up, or participated, in Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform environments. We hold a music-filled Simchat Shabbat service at 6:15 PM on Erev Shabbat using a prayerbook of our own creation. On Shabbat mornings we have an 8:30 AM Shacharit service followed by Torah study at 9:15 AM. There is also a late Shacharit service at 10:45 AM when students become B'nai Mitzvah.
TST has families of all ages from young families with no children to "empty nesters". We support programming directed at all of these groups. Over the past several years we have added and enhanced programs such as a re-invigorated social action program (Tekiah), a significantly expanded Youth program including trips and outside programs for each grade level, a comprehensive set of adult learning classes on both weekdays and weekends, a Jewish Explorations Weekend, Reyim - a group for empty nesters, an Israel Action Committee, Kesher - a caring community, Tot Shabbat, a Brotherhood-sponsored golf tournament; Shir Tikva Players - which produces an annual Broadway-style musical, and Cantorial concert.
We invite you to celebrate our 30th anniversary this year, or to participate in the joy and warmth of our Torah study and religious services on Shabbat or holidays.
