Welcome to Education at TBA

From our youngest babies attending the Simchat Shabbat with their families to our grade 12 graduates, our children and families find their second home at Temple Beth Avodah.  Our Temple is a gather place for connecting with each other, exploring Jewish identity, learning about Judaism, caring for our world, and discovering the richness of Jewish experience. We value our ability to create small groups to meet in person and have implemented health and safety protocols. We will meet in person when able based on the health and safety recommendations from the state.

 

Throughout our programs, we utilize interactive learning tools and a holistic approach, focus on social and emotional growth, and incorporate the family and community in the educational process.  We welcome you to stop by, call or email us to learn more about our personal approach to Jewish learning and youth engagement.

Be Kind to Yourself

Bein Adam L’atzmo

Between a person and themselves

 

“Teach each child according to their way and when they grow old, they will not turn away from it.” Proverbs 22:6

 

We believe in nurturing each child, each family as individuals and guiding them in a path that best fits their own needs.

Be Kind to Others

Bein Adam L’chavero

Between a person

and their community

 

“Do not separate yourself from the community.”

Pirkei Avot 2:5

 

We believe in coming together as a community to learn from one another, support each other, and celebrate the joy of Jewish life.

Be Kind to The Space Around Us

Bein Adam L’makom

Between a person and sacred space

 

“God was in this place and I, I did not know.”

We believe in creating holy spaces and moments to experience the richness of spirituality and connection.
