Welcome to PTBE

PTBE is a Reform congregation affiliated with the Union of Reform Judaism and has been a home for the Jewish community on the Peninsula for 60 years. While our history provides us with a rich and wonderful heritage, embracing new temple members ensures that we will be a vibrant community for both current and future generations.
 
If you're looking for a congregation that is committed to inclusiveness, traditions, tikkun olam and trying new approaches, we'd love to meet you and tell you more. PTBE welcomes Jews and all people who seek faith and community. Our membership includes individuals, couples and families of many generations and cultures. We cherish this diversity and also warmly welcome interfaith couples.
 
 

Youth and Family Education

Probably because we're in Silicon Valley, we're enthusiastic to innovate. Families with children from kindergarten through sixth grade have a choice between our Rishonim (Sunday School) or our Gesher Family Education programs. Gesher, for example, is nationally recognized as an innovative educational model that reimagines traditional religious school as an inclusive, community oriented experience for the whole family. We also understand that students learn Hebrew in different ways and our program aims to be inclusive of these differences in our students and their approaches to learning.  Electives are what engages our teens in the Wednesday Night Teen Program.  
 

Early Childhood Education Center

If you're looking for our well regarded pre-school, please see the Ganon website.
 

Social Action

Tikkun Olam, repairing the world, is a central principle of Reform Judaism. Members of PTBE have many opportunities to engage in tikkun olam, including becoming a member of the Caring Committee, making lunches for hungry people with SSH, making friends of other faiths through the Interfaith Friendship Committee, or through youth group projects. You can also find news from the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, the social action arm of the Reform Movement.
