Shalom and Welcome

Three families started our congregation in 1979 to create a Reform presence in Edmonton. Originally, Shabbat services were held twice a month in people’s homes. The congregation quickly outgrew the walls of the living room and found a home in the Jewish Community Centre. In 2007, TBO moved from the Edmonton JCC to Chesed Shel Emeth, home of Edmonton’s Chevra Kadisha. TBO is a member congregation of the Union for Reform Judaism and the Canadian Council for Reform Judaism.

We are grateful that the small seed of our beginnings has grown into a vibrant tree of life, within Edmonton's wider Jewish community. Join us if you are passionate about having a forward looking, innovative, spiritual Jewish home here in your city!

What's special about us?

We strive to bring together the best of what is Edmonton with the best of what is Jewish. Living so far up north (relatively speaking....), we know about very long summer days, but, also about very long winter nights. Join us at Shul when it's 30 below zero outdoors and the air is frozen. Join us in the summer to work on our community vegetable garden. We are here year round, those of us who were born here and those who have made Edmonton their home away from home.

We live on the verge of wilderness, and that spirit is part of our identity.
