Ma'yan Tikvah - A Wellspring of Hope
Ma'yan Tikvah - A Wellspring of Hope

Welcome to Ma'yan Tikvah -- 

A Wellspring of Hope

Do you love being outdoors?

Ma'yan Tikvah holds outdoor Shabbat services     all year long. 

Ma'yan Tikvah - A Wellspring of Hope, is an independent congregation literally without walls that provides a home for those seeking an unconventional way of encountering Judaism in the outdoors. 


Ma'yan Tikvah strives to provide a meaningful connection to Judaism through alternative experiences of Shabbat and the holidays, along with  small-group study, experiences of and care for the natural world, and community tzedakah (rightous acts) and social events. 


Services or celebrations are held on most Shabbatot and holidays, and events that combine study or active tzedakah and socializing are held throughout the year. 

Services are led by Rabbi Katy Allen.


Events are held in and near Wayland.
