“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”

~ Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Here for you for life’s transitions.



Experience Jewish tradition surrounded by the warmth of a caring community.

Birth/Adoption

Mazel tov!
Traditionally, we welcome a boy on the eighth day of life through a circumcision ceremony performed by a mohel.

While there is no prescribed time for a baby naming, most families do so within the baby’s first year of life during our Friday evening Shabbat service or in a private ceremony.

Consecration

Mark the beginning of your child’s formal Jewish education on Simchat Torah. Students are blessed at the ark and receive a miniature Torah of their own as we welcome our newest learners into our community.

Hebrew Names

Tradition teaches that every Jew should have a Jewish name, for “A good name is preferable to great riches.” (Proverbs 22:1)

Having a Hebrew name is an affirmation of Jewish identity and is used at special life cycle moments. People of all ages can receive a Hebrew name.

Our clergy marry Jewish, interfaith, and same-sex couples.

We warmly welcome people who decide to espouse Judaism. Working with a rabbi or cantor, you will meet, study, and cap off the process with a ceremony.

Interfaith Families

TBE is blessed by diversity. We welcome all families looking to nurture a connection to Jewish life. Through programs and gatherings, we explore the joys and challenges common to interfaith families.

We also bring together parents of adult children in interfaith families.
