Get To Know Us
TBS began in 1973 as a small group of Jewish families in Palm Coast who were determined to begin their own synagogue. Nearly 50 years later, we're still here! (And we're preparing for our 50th Anniversary Gala Celebration...)
Learn more about our history on the Historic TBS page. It's quite a story.
TBS is a house of worship that embraces the practices of traditional Judaism, though we are unaffiliated with any particular denominational stream. We're simply Jews. Our members come from a diverse background of Jewish practice and traditions, from Orthodox to Reform, but we come together to pray and to study. We are an egalitarian, spiritual community that welcomes everyone and encourages diversity. If you want to connect to Jewish life with a vibrant, participatory congregation, you belong here. When we gather, we embrace each other’s company, nourishing the mind, heart, and spirit, sharing good food and many laughs.
We are a welcoming synagogue that enriches and uplifts the lives of our members and our community. We foster a meaningful and welcoming Jewish home for all Jews in Flagler County. We want TBS to be a place where everyone feels like they belong -- a place where all people, Jew and non-Jew alike, can connect and explore Judaism. We strive to ensure our operations are guided by responsibility, transparency, and trustworthiness, and our interactions characterized by respect, optimism, and kindness.
