Women of TBA

WTBA is a dynamic group of women working together to support Jewish education, our synagogue community, and each other. Through accessible, inspiring, fun, and diverse programming, we enrich our lives, build friendships, practice mitzvot, and improve our congregation and our community.

Contact Women of TBA President Jill Oggeri for more information.

Men's Club

The TBA Men’s Club endeavors to enrich the experience and quality of Jewish life at TBA through our commitment to service and awareness of the traditions of our faith. Through programmed activities, we promote a more thorough knowledge and practice of our heritage, culture, and religion. We also provide service and financial support to synagogue operations and facilities. Most enjoyably, through our many activities, we establish camaraderie and social connections among Men’s Club members and within the TBA community at large.

Contact Men’s Club President Bryan Schwartz for more info.

Social Action

This committee’s goal is to further our collective commitment to Tikkun Olam – the repair of the world. The emphasis is on realizing our Jewish values and traditions through the performance of mitzvot, including direct services and advocacy regarding social issues to Jews in the East Bay. Participation can be a one-time activity or ongoing. Your suggestions are always welcome.


BBYO is a teen-run, Jewish youth group for ages 13-18. It is a great way to meet Jews from all over the Bay Area and gain leadership experience. For more information, visit the BBYO Central Region West information page, or contact the synagogue.
