Strength of tradition and warmth of communityare at the heart of our congregation, yet we are so much more. We are a center for Jewish life, a home away from home where you and your loved ones can share with us in the life-long Jewish journey of learning and discovery.
Whatever your background, age, or stage of life, we invite you to get to know us by checking out our diverse programs, worship services and special events. We hope that you will find TBY at the center of your Jewish life. Interfaith couples and families welcome.
As the weeklong festival of Passover concludes, we celebrate the seventh day, corresponding to the anniversary of the miraculous crossing of the Sea of Reeds and signaling the beginning of our people’s 40 year journey through the wilderness. Having won our freedom from bondage, we make our way to Mt Sinai where, after seven weeks (represented by the counting of the Omer), we receive the Torah and commit ourselves to being partners with G-d in perfecting the world. The freedom we relive on Passover is connected seven weeks later to the responsibilities of Torah on the festival of Shavuot. Our freedom is not only a freedom from bondage in Egypt but also a freedom to follow the path of Torah and to worship the Power that makes for the possibility of freedom.
