Located in Seattle’s North End,
we are a Reform synagogue committed to helping Jews and their loved ones build a joyful, spiritual, caring, and egalitarian community.
TBA welcomes the entire spectrum of our Jewish community: people of all ages, races, and abilities; interfaith families; and people who are single, partnered, straight, gay, lesbian, and transgender. As a vibrant center of learning, we enable each member to reflect the holy.
Voted "Best Adult Education Program" and "Best Jewish Supplemental School" by the readers of JTNews.
