Families with Young Children (Yaldeinu, 0-5)

Yaldeinu logo

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.

Dear families,

I'm so excited to be offering PTJL at TBE again this year.  I found this program is so valuable and inspiring, as I know TBE parents have too!

A few details:

1) PTJL welcomes “parents of all faiths, families and cultures” so even if you’re not Jewish, you are very welcome and wanted.

2) We understand that family schedules are busy, so it's fine to miss a class or two.

3) The fee is $95/person or $155/couple. PTJL offers discounts if the cost is too high -- contact Erica at [email protected] to request a fee adjustment.

4) Free childcare is available!

Let me know if you have any questions, and hope to see you soon!
