Endless Opportunities

Lifelong learning is at the heart of Judaism. We focus on adult education and cultural arts programming designed to encourage men and women to grow in their Jewish path, connect with other TBT members, learn and have fun. Every year we pick a theme and this year’s theme is Jewish Ethics. Expect to find various learning opportunities connected to this theme.

For any questions about TBT’s Adult Education and Cultural Arts program, to volunteer or to provide suggestions for programs, contact Jayne Carlin at jscarlin@gmail.com or any of the committee members listed below.

For all Endless Opportunities Events

April Events

WA State Jewish History

Howard Droker, historian and (retired) attorney, will share photos, census maps, and more as we look at local Jewish history from 1850 until World War II during this interactive program. We’ll explore three waves of Jewish Settlement in Washington State that took place during this timeframe: German speakers, Eastern Europeans, and those of Sephardic Heritage. Whether you’re familiar with the topic or it’s new to you, our local expert will have something for everyone.
