Young Members

Thank you for visiting the Young Members Group website! We invite you to explore the wide range of Jewish family and adult programming on TBS' 2018-19 calendar of events, and we hope that you'll join us!

Here are a few frequently asked questions that may provide some helpful information about our group:

What is Young Members Group?
YMG is an active community of young adults and families that offers meaningful Jewish family, social, religious, and educational experiences both at TBS and in our local community. YMG represents a strong undercurrent of TBS, and it has approximately 250 members.

Who is the target audience of Young Members Group?
YMG programs are geared towards both preschool AND religious school-aged families. Additionally, all programs are open to both members and non-members of TBS. Our steering committee has worked hard to create a high standard of innovative experiences that enable our families to grow together and develop strong relationships in our community! There is something on the calendar for everyone in your family.

Who is part of the Young Members Group Steering Committee?
Our YMG steering committee is made up of almost 30 TBS members who are:

  • men and women
  • early childhood and religious school-aged parents
  • moms and dads with children learning at TBS, the Katz JCC, Kellman Brown Academy, as well as other local synagogues

This diversity helps our committee in planning initiatives that are intended to appeal to a broad range of young Jewish adults and families. As part of the same synagogue family, our committee considers TBS our spiritual "home away from home", and we want to share that connection and level of comfort with you and your children!

Where should questions or feedback be directed?
If you have any ideas to share, or would like to become involved please email me or one of our committee members (see below). We'd love to hear your input! Please be sure to visit our site frequently for updated scheduling information, event registration, as well as recent photos!
