HAZAK had a wonderful time on their trip to the Bronx this past October. Check out the slide show here!


HAZAK provides programming and activities for TBS members who are 55+. Meetings are usually the third Thursday of each month at 1 pm with occasional Sunday morning or evening programs to enable those who are working or otherwise scheduled to participate.

HAZAK aims to complement TBS' Adult Education Programs with additional social, educational, and spiritual activities. HAZAK also reaches out to other congregations in our region for joint activities and programming. Our mature adults continue to learn and to be a vital part of the TBS and South Jersey communities.

For more information contact HAZAK President, Alan Blocher.
