This Week's PTBE High News

Upcoming Sessions

Fall Opening Session: Sunday, September 22 1:00-2:30 p.m. (High School including Confirmation students, one Sunday a month) - PTBE High is all about teens coming together to build lasting relationships and develop deeper Jewish identities. Students will check stress at the door, grab a bagel, and get creative. Each session, we’ll dive into a new medium of expression, from painting, to music, to spoken word, to food, through the lens of Jewish story and culture.
