Education Committee

The school year is starting September 20th. If you have not done so, don’t forget to register now for the 2015-2016 Religious School year. Early registration allows us to better plan for teachers. Register online at registration.html or obtain a hard copy from the temple office.It is also registration time for 2015-2016 Nursery School year. If you or someone you know would like information about upcoming TBT Nursery School slots or programs, please contact Director Bernadette Stak at 203-245-8039 for information. Classes are filling up. Classes include our great Child-Parent program on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 am to 10:30 am. The little ones have playtime, story time, and a snack with a teacher while parents explore, with experts from the community, topics related to child development and parenting. Please help spread the word about our nurturing and creative programs. Word of mouth has always been our most successful way of enrolling students. Children do not need to be Jewish to attend the Nursery School or to participate in its enrichment programs. The Education Committee is working on Adult Education for this coming fall. Do you have suggestions or would you like to become involved in planning adult education events? If so, please contact Cher Richmond ( or Deb Coe (


Social Justice anticipates an exciting year and so many opportunities for you and family members of all ages to participate! This is the time to join and help people less fortunate than ourselves, contribute to environmental projects, and have your voice heard in public policy matters. This committee is a great way to celebrate Jewish values, fortify your Jewish identity, have fun, and meet other members of the congregation!
