Ma'yan Tikvah - A Wellspring of Hope, is an independent congregation literally without walls that provides a home for those seeking an alternative way of encountering Judaism through outdoor services and intimate learning opportunities.
Ma'yan Tikvah strives to provide a place of hope and trust for those seeking a meaningful connection to Judaism and personal and communal experiences of the sacred through ritual and holiday observance, study, prayer, encounters with the natural world, care of the environment, tzedakah (rightous acts), and gimilut hasadim (loving kindness).
Ma'yan Tikvah holds regular informal outdoor Shabbat services that include a Torah discussion. Holiday events or services are held on most holidays, and an on-going introductory Talmud learning group allows for deeper study. Events take place in Wayland and nearby communities. Many holiday celebrations are intentionally welcoming to the interfaith world.
The Earth provides healing, but also needs healing, and so we strive to minimize the impact of our activities and to maintain a sense of responsibility to the Earth and all its inhabitants.
Input from friends and members helps the growth and shaping of Ma'yan Tikvah, and your creative contributions are encouraged as we strive to build an open, welcoming, and participatory community.
