Temple Kol Tikvah is the Jewish congregation in Lake Norman. With more than 200 families, we are inclusive, egalitarian, innovative and fun. Affiliated with the Reform movement, we welcome all who seek to explore, learn and practice the rich traditions, heritage and spirituality of Judaism. Interfaith couples – in fact, families of all forms – are welcome with open arms at Temple Kol Tikvah. Our mission is to provide a spiritual home for our members while effecting positive change in our community. We believe that social, intellectual and spiritual development is connected to political and social activism. Therefore, we strive to help our members and our community deal with today’s challenges authentically, honestly and in accordance with Jewish ethics. Guided by Rabbi Michael Shields, we encourage practices that bring joy, peace and deeper spiritual connections, through fellowship, education and soulful prayer. Please contact us to learn about becoming a member or feel free to join us for services at any time. Our doors, minds and hearts are always open.
