TBE Youth: From Toddler to Teen
“When you teach your children, you teach your children’s children.”
Grow at TBE!
Nurture the joy of Jewish living.
Our youth community provides children of all ages and their families with opportunities to participate in Jewish life.
Early Learning Center
Since 1972, our preschool has engaged children in learning, fostered joy in Jewish values, and built a community in which relationships last a lifetime.
Families with Young Children (Ages 0-5)
Enjoy Jewish holidays and other events designed to engage your little ones and build connections among families. Older siblings are welcome, too!
This year, we’re offering two learning program options for grades K–7. BaDerech, meaning on our path, will engage students in grades K–7 in learning about the Jewish calendar year through specific chugim, modalities, including visual arts, science & technology, performing arts, cooking, and book club. BaBayit, meaning in the home, will inspire families to take a deep dive into bringing the Jewish holidays into their homes. Students can choose to participate in BaDerech, BaBayit, or both! All students in grades 4–6 will study Hebrew, and students in grades 6 & 7 will continue with B’Mitzvah preparation.

Our teen community connects to Jewish life by actively experiencing it! Havayah fosters Jewish identity, a commitment to social justice, leadership skills, and deep connection to Jewish life at TBE and beyond.
Day School Community
TBE and local Jewish day schools share the belief that relationships and community are central to living a joyful, fulfilling Jewish life. School and synagogue are extensions of each other.

BaBayit: The Jewish Time Experience
BaBayit, meaning in the home, will inspire families and individuals (of all ages, life stages, sizes and structures) to take a deep dive into bringing the Jewish holidays into their homes while connecting deeply with other families and individuals. The program will be staffed by TBE’s clergy and full-time learning team and will be linked to our community holiday celebrations. BaBayit will include Zoom meetings, home observance, family activities, dinner discussions, and the option for distanced, in-person gatherings.
