Tikvah Community Forum
Facebook Community

The Tikvah Community Forum is still going strong after 2 months of being active! We are now at 22 members and have consistent involvement every week. Excited to see where this takes us next!

Through our Facebook page we have created a community online forum where members can stay in touch after events are over and hear about events coming up too! We plan to make this online community a private online space just for members. If you are interested or have questions about how to join, our communications manager Carter Freedlander (carter@tikvahajmi.org) would be happy to help!
