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.
Our featured speaker for our annual Yiddish-themed Kabbalat Shabbat is Jeremiah Wilton, an amateur genealogist and language geek whose efforts at deciphering family documents led him to an interest in Yiddish.
Our service also features Yiddish poetry, songs, and prayers presented by students from our year-long Yiddish classes, along with traditional Hebrew liturgy and English readings. An oneg featuring Eastern European treats will follow the service.
