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.

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.
