Welcome to HBT

Are you an empty nester looking for a temple community?
Or are you a young family looking for religious school for your child?
Are you an adult looking for a progressive inclusive community?
Whatever your reason for shul shopping, please come check out HBT and join us for one of our many upcoming events.

HBT is a small community, with an amazing array of programs for our members. We can meet your spiritual needs with High Holy Day and weekly Shabbat services, Torah Study with Rabbi Barbara Penzner, and a twice-weekly evening minyan. We care about lifelong learning, and offer an outstanding educational program for children through our Chaverim School, as well as intellectually stimulating activities for members of all ages.

We hope you'll consider how this unique faith-based community can help you find peace and purpose in ways that enrich your own Jewish values and experience. Do you have friends or family members who are unaffiliated? Bring them with you to meet our Rabbi, lay-leaders and teachers.

We’d love to welcome you to HBT!
