Forging a New Future for the Jewish Community in Kitsap County
Welcome to Congregation Beth Hatikvah. We’re glad you’re here.

Holy One of Blessing, we pray for safety and peace for all the people suffering in Ukraine, and all people whose lives continue to be devastated by war. Holy One of Blessing, heal those injured in body, mind or spirit. Protect the vulnerable with Your presence.
Open all our hearts to the vulnerable and the suffering. Remind us that we were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt, captive in Babylon, pursued by crusaders, tormented by inquisitors, devastated by pogroms, murdered by oppressors. Remind us that this is the universal experience of war and violence.
As we pray in the Amidah: Open my heart to Your Torah, that I may pursue Your mitzvot. As for all who think evil of me, cancel their designs and frustrate their schemes. Act for Your own sake, for the sake of Your Power, for the sake of Your Holiness, for the sake of Your Torah; so that Your loved ones may be rescued, save with Your power. And answer me.
