This is Part I of the video shown at the 4018 Gala on November 23, 2013.
This video tells the story of Beth Tikvah Congregation and Centre in Richmond, BC, Canada.
A strong source of Conservative Jewish life in Richmond since 1972, Beth Tikvah provides a home for reflective worship, inspiring youth programs, and enriching adult education.

The challenge of making this video was finding all the old imagery and newspaper articles. Some of the characters were difficult to find but much thanks to the volunteers at Beth Tikvah for their dedication. After the Beth Tikvah synagogue had been built, the community went on to build a Jewish Day School. Click here to see Part II The History of RJDS Richmond Jewish Day School.
