The fourth book of the Torah, Numbers, takes its Hebrew name from the location of its narrative, B'Midbar, in the wilderness. Between slavery in Egypt and a future in the Promised Land is a 40 year period of wandering during which the generation that knew slavery will perish. Old attitudes and expectations must give way before new possibilities can be seized. Our lives are filled with transitions that challenge us. Sometimes we need the space and time afforded by "the wilderness" to clear our minds, refresh our souls and give us the strength, and perspective, to enter our own Promised Land.
Strength of tradition and warmth of community are 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. LGBTQI+ and Interfaith couples and families welcome!
