Beth Tikvah Member, Maayan Ziv's Story

Maayan Ziv will be joining Beth Tikvah Synagogue for Shabbat Itanu on Shabbat morning, May 6.

"Beth Tikvah deserves a lot of credit for making the Bimha accessible. It was Maayan's first time as an independent adult approaching the Torah in such an intimate way. It made a huge impression on her, and I'm sure she will never forget that experience."

- Joshua Ziv, Beth Tikvah Member and Maayan's Dad
