TFC – Temple Family Connections (formerly TYA)

Temple Family Connections, formerly Temple Young Associates, is a warm, welcoming community for all members of The Temple-Tifereth Israel who have children in preschool through 8th grade. Temple Family Connections sponsors creative family holiday celebrations, educational programming and leadership opportunities throughout the year. Family holiday celebrations include Sukkah building, decorating and “Pizza in the Hut;” Chanukah crafts, dinner and Rock My Soul; a Tu B’shevat Seder and the ever-popular Purim carnival. Social, educational and religious programming for both adults and children offers families at The Temple-Tifereth Israel multiple touch-points in creating life-long Jewish memories from birth on. Temple Family Connections hopes to complement and supplement at-home family Judaic observances as well as religious school instruction.

Temple Family Connections welcomes and invites all families at The Temple-Tifereth Israel to attend and participate! For more information or to volunteer on a committee or project, please contact Debra Mayers Hollander ( or Jamie Gray Light (
