About The Temple

     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.

Winter Weather

Because of the extreme cold weather and the absence of several of our regular minyan attendees, there will be no moring services on Saturday, 30 December and Sunday, 31 December 2017. Hoping to see everyone in 2018.

WISHING ALL A HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR!

WINTER HERE IN NEW ENGLAND CAN BE CHALLENGING. WHILE WE WILL ATTEMPT TO MAINTAIN OUR REGULAR SCHEULE OF RELIGIOUS SERVICES, HEBREW SCHOOL AND SOCIAL EVENTS, PRUDENCE WILL DICTATE WHETHER OR NOT THE TEMPLE WILL BE OPEN IN INCLEMENT WEATHER.

USE YOUR BEST JUDGEMENT IN BAD WEATHER AS TO WHETHER OR NOT TO COME TO THE TEMPLE! CALL IF YOU ARE UNSURE AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THE TEMPLE IS OPEN. BE SAFE.


Temple Chanukah Party a Great Success!

This year, Temple Tifereth Israel held its annual Chanukah Party on Sunday, 17 December in the late morning. In addition to a short Chanukah skit by the Temple’s Hebrew School students, Chanukah party attendees enjoyed a delicious breakfast of: ever-popular potato latkes with apple sauce and sour cream, challah casserole, bagels with cream cheese, hot and cold drinks, and a scrumptious variety of pastries and candies.

Traditional Chanukah music was provided with CD’s and live piano playing by the Temple’s own David Lapenson. A quick head count at the party indicated more than seventy people attended this year’s Chanukah event, nearly double the number expected. However, as in all Jewish affairs, there was ample refreshments for all, even with the unexpectedly large turnout - we may not be so lucky next time. So please, make reservations when you are planning to attend an event at the Temple where food is being bought and prepared.

The Chanukah party was organized by the Temple Sisterhood which also manned a gift table with all proceeds benefitting the Temple’s Hebrew School. As evidenced by the number of Hebrew School students who took part in the Chanukah celebration, our Hebrew School is doing quite well in serving the Jewish communities in Winthrop and nearby cities and towns - spread the word.
