Yad b’Yad is a group for young families with at least one child under the age of six.

Programs are held throughout the year, centering around the holidays, including Bim Bam Shabbat Dinner on Friday evenings, Tot Shabbat on Saturday mornings, and holiday parties for Sukkot, Tu BiShvat, Passover, and Chanukah.

Tot Shabbat

Tot Shabbat begins with a short, fun, interactive and song-filled service in the Sanctuary. Kids enjoy this introduction to Jewish prayer by playing musical instruments and dancing with stuffed Torahs. We always follow our service with snacks and playtime, a great opportunity for both kids and parents to get to know their friends at PTBE. Tot Shabbat is held every other third Shabbat morning of the month at 9 a.m. (alternating with Bim Bam Shabbat). Please see dates below.

Bim Bam Shabbat

Bim Bam Shabbat is a Shabbat dinner experience with candles, challah, grape juice and all of your favorite Shabbat songs. It is a great opportunity to schmooze, eat, relax and enjoy a Shabbat meal – leaving all of the dishes to us. Bim Bam Shabbat  is held every other third Shabbat of the month, alternating with Tot Shabbat. Please see dates below. Donations are accepted to cover the dinner. RSVP to Rabbi Sara.


This Shabbat Rocks!  This joyous Shabbat service will awaken our bodies and souls with a prayerful shake, rattle and roll.
