End of the Fall Holiday Season

      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 ttiwinthrop@gmail.com

Never Had A Bar or Bas Mitzvah?

      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.

If Not Now, When is the Right Time to Place a Leaf on the Tree of Life?

     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.
