Beyond our invigorating services led by award-winning rabbi, educator and musician, Rabbi David Paskin, our synagogue has an active programming schedule. On-going programs include: Women of Wisdom, Bible Babble, Parsing the Parsha, Book Club and more. Rabbi Paskin has organized programs with Jewish leaders including: Journey into Jewish Identity, Welcome Home, Jazz Up Your Seder, The Jewish Superhero. Fun and learning never stops at TBA, and our members can participate in many of these programs virtually, allowing the learning to continue at home, office or a favorite local cafe.
Over the past year, our adult education team has invited two acclaimed authors, hosted a genealogy program, and introduced a how-to play Mah Jongg series, to name a few. We ushered in spring with the inaugural Red Carpet Event: A Fashion Extravaganza attracting women from the community to enjoy a fashion show featuring local boutique retailers. Our Membership Team hosted a Shabbat Unplugged (an energetic Shabbat full of music and dance followed by a delicious dinner and a Judaic ceramic project), as well as an enjoyable Snowbird Shabbat-welcoming back all those who escape the cold each winter. The first six months of 2013 have been full of exciting programs with more being planned.
Religious School is ramping up for another exciting year, with a fresh and unique curriculum, a progressive 2-day/week program, and engaging professional team. TBA children experience a whole new type of Hebrew School. Visit our website www.templebethabraham.org or call 781-828-5250 to register today.
What makes our religious school different? Our children will meet on Tuesdays for a more traditional classroom experience and then, on Shabbat for a special experiential learning program. Our youngest children, Kindergarteners and 1st graders will learn through music, crafts, and other unique ways that makes learning fun. This program, Shorashim, also focuses on bringing the families together socially to experience living Jewishly. The post-Bar/Bat Mitzvah age children are invited to join one of our educators for a discussion group on issues that face our teenagers on a daily basis. This small group will meet in a casual setting rather than a traditional classroom. Engaging children and their families from a young age and ensuring that there is continued learning post-Bar/Bat Mitzvah keeps our youth involved.
Temple Beth Abraham strives to inspire personal and spiritual growth and foster meaningful relationships with God, Israel and with all people. As a community, we bear responsibility to better our world, to engage in lifelong learning and to empower ourselves and our children to live Jewishly. Through religious, educational, community service, cultural, and social opportunities, our progressive, close-knit congregation serves the many needs of the current and future community of Jews.
