Here's what one parent had to say about TBE's Hebrew School:

Zach, my ten year old son, began hebrew school this year. There was a lot of trepidation since he would be starting school a year behind the other children.

Through private lessons, which lasted a few short months, Zach was reading hebrew!! He joined his classmates and began his exciting journey discovering his Jewish heritage.

I have seen Zach's interest in Judaism grow this year. The Cantor has provided Zach with an avenue to explore his Judaism through the use of discussion, theatre and song. Zach has also met some wonderful new friends that he will know for many years to come.

Zach and I both look forward to what next year will bring!!

Movie Night:  “Goodbye Columbus”
Sunday, August 28th - 5:00 pm in the Vestry
One of the most popular films of its day, “Goodbye Columbus” stars Richard
Benjamin as Neil Klugman, and Ali McGraw as Brenda Patimkin. Home for the
summer, Brenda, a wealthy “Cliffie” (Radcliffe student) and Neil, an intelligent,
working-class army veteran and student at Rutgers, fall in love.  They face many
obstacles to their relationship, due to the opposition of Brenda’s family,
differences in class, and assimilation into the American mainstream. Other
conflicts include propriety and issues related to premarital sex and the possibility
of pregnancy, and Mrs. Patimkin’s envy of her daughter’s youth. (1969)
