Join us for a Shabbat morning service for kids and their families (siblings of all ages are invited to join)! 

Tot Service (best for ages 4 and under) and Family Service (best for ages 5+) take place concurrently. Both services begin at 11:00 am.

Family services in the new backyard tent follow the order of a Shabbat morning service. We will learn parts of the liturgy, introduce the weekly Torah portion, and chant some of it too.

Tot services in the Chapel (on the Lower level) celebrate Shabbat with all the essentials: songs, movement, plush Torahs, and story time. Come to introduce the youngest members of your family to Shabbat services and connect with other families at TBB.

Climate Fair Event

Monday, August 5 at 8:00-9:15pm on Zoom

Monte Pearson and Marya Axner will give a presentation about the organization that governs our electric grid: The Independent Systems Operator of New England (ISO NE)

Why would anyone be interested in this? Because this organization, ISO NE, makes decisions about all the electricity that comes into our homes and businesses etc. Its decisions determine how fast we will transition to renewables and away from fossil fuels. Its decisions also influence how much we pay for electricity.

How fast will we bring solar and wind energy into our grid? Find out. Learn more about the TBB Climateers here.
