TBE perceives the land and people of Israel as extensions of our home and family. Through CJP's Boston/Haifa partnership, we are connected to the Leo Baeck Education Center with its congregation, Ohel Avraham. Through Anafim, our parent/teen learning and travel program with parents and teens from Leo Baeck, we are finding new ways to deepen our connections every year. We integrate learning about Israel into our curricula, exploring our connection through Torah, music, art, food, and ritual. We hope that every student has the opportunity to travel to Israel. Through NFTY, camps, day school and Birthright, there are many options for summer, semester-long and short term travel. One highlight of our program is the family trip to Israel led by Rabbi Sisenwine very other year. TBE families who participate form life-long relationships as they experience first-hand the beauty and impact of the holy land — sharing Shabbat, walking our history, engaging with the people and culture today.
