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.

Sukkot Marked the End of the Fall Holiday Season
With the conclusion of Sukkot, including Hoshanah Rabbah, Shemini Atzeret and
Simchat Torah, the Fall 5778 Hebrew Holidays season came to an end. Our next Jewish holiday will be Chanukah,
which will not begin until the evening of 12 December.
On Saturday, 7 October, Dorothy and Craig Mael hosted the Shabbat morning kidduch
at their nearby sukkah and on Sunday, 8 October, they hosted a brunch in their sukkah for
Temple members and our Hebrew School students.
We were most fortunate to have any rain hold off and the Mael's hospitality was
much appreciated by all. Some pictures taken at the Mael sukkah on Sunday morning are shown below.
Todah Rabbah to Dorothy and Craig Mael for making their sukkah available to
Temple members and Hebrew School students and for their hard work in preparing and serving the Shabbat morning
kiddush and Sunday morning brunch in their sukkah.
