שיר תקוה     

Temple Shir Tikvah is Bloomington's Traditional Reform Congregation.  Our name means "Song of Hope"


We welcome anyone searching for a warm, welcoming community celebrating Jewish life in the Reform tradition.


Our community includes families and singles, mature and younger members, Jews by Choice and families from blended Religious Traditions and backgrounds!

Where's Rabbi???

Rabbi Ballaban is spending the year in service to our nation's Veterans.  A Navy Chaplain himself many years ago, Rabbi Ballaban is currently spending a year in Portland, Oregon away from his own family and our congregational family to work with Veterans suffering from PTSD.  He can be reached by email (rabbi@templeshirtikvah.org) or phone (812.671.0449).  He continues to work with congregants by phone, and writes for our weekly bulletin.   Rabbi Ballaban looks forward to returning to his family and our family next fall, in time for the High Holy Days!
