The Jewish High Holiday services at Temple
Tifereth Israel were very well attended this year. Cantor Craig Mael and Rabbinical Intern
David Joslin efficiently conducted the services in both Hebrew and English and held to
the announced schedule. Their conducting of the services was fully enjoyed by all
present. Kol haKavod!
Coming after the high holy days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur,
we celebated Sukkot, Hoshanah Rabbah, Shemini Atzeret, and Simchat Torah. On the 18th and 19th
of October, Temple members, Hebrew School students and their parents celebrated Sukkot in
the Sukkah of Craig and Dortothy Mael. Once again, Thanks to Craig and Dorothy!
On the evening of 21 October, we joined with Rabbinical Intern, David Joslin, in celebrating
the final holiday of the season, Simchat Torah. SEE PHOTOGRAPHS BELOW.
We now get a Jewish Holiday respite until the night of
22 December when we light the first Chanukah candle.
NOTE: THE TEMPLE SISTERHOOD OPERATES A
GIFT SHOP. INSTEAD OF RUNNING AROUND FOR CHANUKAH CANDLES, GIFTS, ETC., YOU CAN GET
WHATEVER YOU NEED FROM THE TEMPLE GIFT SHOP. ORDER EARLY TO MAKE SURE YOU GET WHAT YOU
NEED IN TIME TO CELEBRATE THE JOYOUS HOLIDAY OF CHANUKAH.
To place your order at the gift shop, contact the Temple
at 617-846-1390 or at email@example.com
Some of our Temple members and some members of the
Jewish communityin and around Winthrop who are not members of the Temple may have never experienced
their own Bar or Bas Mitzvah. We are offering the opportunity for these people to become Bar or
Bas Mitzvah'd. Your Bar/Bas Mitzvah training will include English and Hebrew and everyone. No matter
what your background or ability, you will be able to participate and achieve this wonderful goal.
Contact the Temple at "617-846-1390" for more information. Remember:
Everyone can be a participant, as long as you have the desire. We will accommodate to everyone's
abilities, needs and desires.
TEMPLE GIFT SHOP
Instead of running around wasting expesive fuel to
find a gift for your child, grandchild, or anyone else, you can buy or order the perfect gift from
the Temple's Gift Shop, while helping to support the Temple. To purchase an item,
call the office at 617-846-1390 to see if they can order what you want.
Place a leaf on the Tree of Life in the Main Sancutary to support
the Temple while showing your love and affection for dear friends and relatives. Engraved leafs
cost only $180 and there is no more appropriate way to honor loved ones and to celebrate those
special occasions - anniversaries, births, birthdays, etc.
You can order your leaf by providing the Temple with your instructions
for the name and message to be placed on the leaf and sending in your payment. It will normally
take 4 to 5 weeks for your order to be completed.
