Mrs. Sandra (Goldstein) Pellegrino
I hope everyone is well during this difficult time with so many
challenges brought on by the COVID 19 pandemic.
President, Temple Tifereth Israel
We are well aware of the turmoil that many are experiencing.
The Temple is attempting
to provide a sense of belonging and continuity as much as possible.
We are doing our best to keep in contact with everyone especially those who are in need
of special services. Our student Rabbi, David Joslin, is attempting to be available for
whatever needs one my have, i.e. talking, questions, etc. He also has been overseeing a
Support Group which is welcoming to anyone who wishes to participate. Very casual,
unintimidating, and accepting.
In regard to Religious Services, we have been conducting these
via Zoom. While not
ideal, it has been proven to be very helpful in providing a source for those wanting to be
part of a Shabbat or Holiday service, a sense of community.
Our hope is to return to the Temple within the next few weeks
to conduct our usual
Saturday, Sunday, and holiday services.
We will be incorporating strict guidelines i.e. Spacing
(seating) masks, hand sanitizer,
As well as adjustments being made to the usual protocol/service to ensure proper
distancing and socialization.
For further information about anything temple related,
you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage all to join us. With G-d's help and guidance,
we will continue our worship
services as best we can - with commitment, perseverance, and hope. Now, perhaps more
than ever, we need to enhance our community, share our heritage, and take pride in our
With G-d's Blessings,
Sandra Pellegrino, President
May the Holy One who blessed our ancestors — Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca,
Rachel and Leah — bless and heal all those who are ill.
May the Holy One show compassion to them, restore them, heal them, and strengthen
them. May the Holy One deliver to all who are ill a complete healing — healing of the soul
and healing of the body — to all among the people of Israel and all humankind, soon,
speedily, without delay, and let us all say: Amen!
May the Lord bless you and protect you.
May the Lord make His face shine unto you and be gracious to you.
May the Lord lift up His face unto you, and grant you peace.
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.
