Connecting new parents, and Jewish families, through peer-support groups.

Temple B’nai Torah and Program for Early Parent Support (PEPS) are teaming up to offer TBT+PEPS! These Jewish support groups for new parents will be offered at various locations throughout the Greater Seattle area, as well as online. The classes will be led by Temple Clergy, Rabbi Sydney, and Rabbi Molly, who will be infusing the acclaimed PEPS curriculum with Jewish values and teachings. 

Classes are designed for families with children ages 2 weeks to 18 months. Each cohort will meet for 12 weeks.

The cost is $36 for TBT Member Families and $180 for non-members.

Upon registration, you will be able to select a region that works best for your family, or you can select an online class. Class locations, and new cohorts, will be formed on an ongoing basis, based on registration. If we cannot fill a group in your area, we will reach back out to you either suggest a nearby group to join, an online option, or we can refund your registration fee if none of the options are suitable for your family. 

TBT+PEPS Groups are designed to facilitate community and connection, support parents as they transition into various stages of parenthood, and educate families on ways to build a Jewish home.  

TBT+PEPS Groups make it easy to connect with other families who have children close in age to yours. TBT+PEPS Groups are fun and social, with a focus on the relationship between parents and their child and growing parent confidence.

It is a whirlwind being a brand new parent, and having this outlet helps us feel like we are not alone in both the ups and the downs! ~ PEPS Group participant

Why Join TBT+PEPS? When we strengthen our connection with one another, we are healthier and more fulfilled. Parents need connections with people they trust, who support them in their role as a parent. TBT+PEPS Groups help shape the healthy development of children, build resilience in families and strengthen our Jewish community. The TBT+PEPS curriculum hones in on the following areas of critical support:

  • Social Connections 
  • Parental Resilience 
  • Child Development 
  • Concrete Support 
  • Social and Emotional Competence 
  • Jewish Teachings on Parenting 
  • Jewish Values for the Family 

Are all welcome! TBT is an inclusive and diverse community and has many interfaith families, LGBTQ+, people of color, Jews by Choice, and those who are differently-abled. 

Sign up for TBT+PEPS and get ready to meet your community of support!
