Lifelong Learning and Engagement


We participate in the Des Moines Jewish Federation’s religious school, Beit Seifer Shalom.

We also offer special events and programs throughout the year to help children and families engage with Judaism, including Family Shabbat, a Family Megillah Reading, Hannukah Happenings, and Sukkah Decoration.

For teens in grades six through twelve, TBJ Youth Group offers a variety of opportunities to learn, volunteer, and socialize.


We offer many routes to pursuing lifelong learning, including Rabbi’s Taste of Judaism classes, weekly Torah Study, and a new monthly program for Jewish engagement called Chai Mitzvah. For more information, click here.


Join Rabbi Kaufman for Taste of Judaism classes. We also offer our Welcome to the Tribe group as a way to connect with others who are new to Judaism.
