Messages from the Temple's President

On behalf of the Officers and Members of Temple Tifereth Israel in beautiful Winthrop-by-the-Sea, I want to welcome any one who is seeking a friendly, comfortable, and non-judgmental congregation to join with us for any of the relaxed, and unintimidating services (see listing) as well as for any other religious, spiritual, or social event.
For anyone interested, we would be more than happy to provide a tour of the Temple as well as explain all aspects of our Temple life. Please conteact the Temple at 617-846-1390 or by e-mail at to arrange for a visit.

It’s Not Too Early

     With the commencement of the month of August, we take note of the end of summer and the coming of a new school year. For Temple Tifereth Israel, August brings about preparations for a new New Year, the Jewish New Year, which starts on the last day of September this year.

     So this is a reminder that it’s not too early to start preparing for the new year, the year 5780 on the Hebrew Calendar. Here are some things to begin your preparations:

  1. Please pay any outstanding dues or dues.
  2. Please promptly pay dues and High Holiday seating charges when you receive you billing notices.
  3. Register children for the Temple’s Hebrew School.
  4. Tell friends, neighbors and family who have young children about registering their children for a Jewish education at the Temple’s Hebrew School.
  5. Urge your Jewish friends, neighbors and family who are not currently members of the Temple to come to the High Holiday services and to consider becoming members.

     One last thing – please let the Temple know about anything you would like to see come about in the new year, including any changes that you would like to see made.

     To everyone – ENJOY THE END OF SUMMER!

Mrs. Sandra (Goldstein) Pellegrino
President, Temple Tifereth Israel

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.
