Our Youth Education program is called
"Chavaya"- experience- for a reason. At
TBT, we believe in a collaborative, hands-on
approach to learning, where each child is
encouraged to question, create, play, build
kehilah -community- and explore.
This is the year that matters most, and while we cannot yet
physically be together, TBT is working to be present for our
families during this time.
Classes will be virtual (Zoom) for the time being, and by re-
imagining our curricula and implementing interactive
technology like JiTap, our team of educators will work to
ensure a collaborative and engaging learning space where
each child feels connected to their Chavaya community.

environment in which children develop and strengthen their self-
esteem and confidence, community awareness and a deep
connection to their Jewish identity.
