Here at TBT, we are excited to offer a variety of educational programs tailored to match each child's own learning style. From Chavaya & Ulpan to Teen Beit Midrash, we make enriching education a central part of Jewish life throughout childhood and beyond.
E.C.L.C. is more than a school. We are a community of parents, children, teachers and staff that come together in creating an enriching experience for our children and providing a safe, nurturing environment for them to grow.
Our “whole child” learning approach encompasses the areas of social, emotional, physical and intellectual development for every child. By using developmentally appropriate, hands-on, playful learning experiences we nurture the development of language and motor skills, foster confidence and independent thinking, and teach students to be respectful, empathic and think of others around them. Our teachers and staff are committed to taking a personal approach to every parent and child, creating an environment that instills confidence and enthusiasm for learning.
Gesher Afterschool Program
Gesher is TBT’s response to many families that can’t access a Jewish Day School, but want to provide high quality Jewish education to their children.
Our program provides children and their families with a community environment that provides them a home every afternoon. Through a warm and engaging atmosphere, children learn about our relationship with G-d and through acts of loving-kindness, begin to learn the aleph-bet, get homework help and stay connected to their Temple community. We offer enrichment activities that support math, reading, and writing in addition to Judaism, science, sports, art and music.
Gesher is open to children from kindergarten to 6th grade.
Chavaya & Ulpan
Our Youth Education program is called Chavaya- experience– for a reason. At TBT, we believe in a collaborative, hands-on approach to learning, where each child is encouraged to question, create, play, build kehilah -community- and explore.
TBT’s Chavaya and Ulpan utilizes an experiential learning approach designed to engage every child through exploration, reflection and expression. Each lesson introduces children to Jewish values relevant in their everyday lives. In Ulpan, children are exposed to Hebrew through music, T’filah engagement, culture, and conversation.

B'nai Mitzvah at TBT is an opportunity for children and families to connect to a wide spectrum of Jewish experiences and to live Jewish values as a community. Spread over an entire year full of exploring and learning, B’nai Mitzvah is a nurturing environment in which children develop and strengthen their self-esteem and confidence, community awareness and a deep connection to their Jewish identity.
Wednesdays & Saturdays, Grade 7
Teen Beit Midrash
Teen Beit Midrash is an opportunity for post-B'nai Mitzvah teens to engage in Jewish learning on a deeper and more advanced level than ever before. We focus on what it means to live a Jewish life, how their Jewish identity will carry them out of their childhood and into their emerging adulthood, and how they can remain connected to Jewish community in their authentic way.
