Jewish Influence

Shalom Tikvah is inspired by the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam and integrates Jewish law and customs into all programming. All facilities will be kosher, shabbos observant and run according to Jewish law. We firmly believe that healing will be best supported when all aspects of children's spirituality remains a consistent and central part of treatment.
