TBT is a welcoming, inclusive Reform Jewish Congregation
in Upper Nyack, NY which offers dynamic, educational, spiritual and social programs for all ages.
TBT’s inspiring initiative, “Shaareinu: Our Gateways”:
We must learn to see past one’s disabilities and to see the Jewish soul within. This is a process of breaking down physical as well as attitudinal barriers, and we at TBT are poised to begin this important work. Enabling all to access our community is not an act of charity, it is an obligation that benefits our entire community. All four of our task forces are comprised of volunteers with a wide range of expertise and experience in relevant fields, both professional and personal. They have been meeting and setting achievable, concrete goals, lead by chairpeople who are taking their place as significant lay leaders of our congregation.
