 List of Accessibility & Accomodations at TBZ
 

TBZ is an independent, inclusive Jewish congregation whose members of all ages are committed to each other, to joyful participatory worship, to meaningful Jewish learning, spiritual growth and acts of social justice.

People often ask us, “What kind of temple are you?” The answer they expect is one of the denominational labels — orthodox, conservative, reform, reconstructionist, and/or renewal. Our answer often surprises: “We are Jewish.”
