My parents joined TAA in the 1970s when I was in high school. We joined because of Rabbi Geller (now Rabbi Emeritus), but we stayed because of the tremendous community. When I moved back to Beverly with my husband in the 1990s, we joined TAA and been active ever since. Our kids have been embraced by the community as they once toddled around during services and now as teens. For our family, TAA is a three-generation affair, with our kids participating alongside their grandparents in services, community Friday night suppers, and musical programs. And it's not just their own grandparents - it's all of the TAA "aunts" and "uncles" who have become an integral part of their lives.
