Kids and Families at TBI
Led by Brandeis senior Dani Nurick, our monthly children's service includes singing, storytelling and movement and provides an opportunity to meet other families in the greater Waltham area. Children join the main service for Adon Olam, and the congregation then enjoys kiddush, challah and a light lunch. The program is geared for children ages 2-7 but all ages are welcome.
TBI also provides babysitting each Shabbat from 10 am to 12 pm., at which time kids join the congregation for Adon Olam and lunch.
March 6: Twenty members gathered to discuss ways to welcome and involve non-Jewish people in our community. Read what we talked about.

We did not seek to draft mission or vision statements ourselves. We recognized that we are a Jewish community and a small community.
