Temple Tifereth Israel of Winthrop is an unaffiliated
Jewish congregation, whose services and practices nominally follow the Conservative tradition. We provide
a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere for our congregants and visitors. The Congregation is committed to
preserving Jewish values and traditions.
The Temple is located just north of Boston and is adjacent to East Boston,
Logan Airport, Revere, and Chelsea. Winthrop has a population of approximately 20,000, is largely
residential and is a peninsula with the Atlantic Ocean to the East and Boston Harbor to the West.
Public transportation provides convenient low cost access to Boston,
while road access to Boston, points west and south is provided by 3 tunnels below Boston Harbor.
Points north of Boston, including New Hampshire and Maine, are easily reached by highways adjacent to Winthrop.

Time to Start Thinking About Next Year
As we are now in mid-summer, the Jewish new year cannot be far ahead. It
is therefore also time now to pay your dues for the coming year, pay any outstanding bills, reserve your seats for
the High Holy Days and consider your Yizkor and other donations to the Temple.
Your dues are used to
keep our Temple doors open and to provide a vibrant Jewish presence in our town of Winthrop. We
once again remind you that Temple dues have not been increased in recent memory while operating costs of
the Temple have climbed each and every day for many years. Everything you buy has gone up in price - everything
that is, except your temple dues. Think about what you spend each week on coffee or restaurants and compare those
costs with your Temple dues.
To make up for the difference between what your dues are today versus what your dues
would be if they had been increased every year at the same rate as the cost of living, please consider making
up the difference with a generous donation this year. Make the donation in memory of your loved ones. This is
our Temple. Let's support it accordingly.
