All families are welcome to participate in Yaldeinu (Community of Families with Young Children) events, whether or not you belong to TBE.  TBE's cohort of families with young children (ages 0-5) 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.
