And you shall teach them to your children
  - Deuteronomy 6.7

PTBE offers engaging and enduring educational experiences for students of all ages. Children, teens, and adults are integral members of our warm and caring community. The values we teach reflect a deep appreciation for Jewish tradition and encourage active interpretation and creative forms of religious expression. Jewish education is a life-long journey. Our goal is for students to gain the necessary tools to study, question, and participate actively in Jewish life. We embrace and teach the principles of Reform Judaism.

Our K-12 Education Program includes Rishonim (Sunday School) and Hebrew Education for K-5 graders, our innovative Gesher Family Education Program and our Wednesday Night Program for 6th-12th grade Teens and our alternative education program for 4th and 5th grades: Tiyul.
