TBE's cohort of families with young children (age 0-8) is bursting at the seams and so is our programming! From Tot Shabbat to parent education programs, a dad's night out and more, we are working hard to help emphasize connections and community within this growing demographic. We are currently looking for new members to join our committee. With your help we can do even more to deepen our connections to TBE, with each other and for our kids! If you are interested in getting more involved in our planning and programming contact Jess Carroll or Pam Nordon to join our Families With Young Children (FwYC) Committee.
