Message from the Temple's President

Greetings to All,

Well it is time to welcome the month of June and all that it is expected to bring i.e., warmer weather, more socialization, and perhaps traveling.

However, at this time, it is with much sadness that I bring to your attention the death of Jean Fernandes, long-time custodian and more importantly ambassador for TTI. When I first became President, it was Jean who provided me with so much guidance and reassurance which I needed so badly. Jean also was a wonderful greeter and went out of her way to make those entering the Temple welcome, answer any questions, and provide information. Every event that was planned was overseen by Jean down to its last detail. Even after retirement, she often came by TTI to visit, talk, have some laughs and bring me my special gumballs that she bought in New Hampshire.... She was a great support, employee, and a friend. Our condolences to her daughters Cindy and Katie and her entire beautiful family. Rest in Peace Jean. May your memory be for a Blessing.

Before we talk about a few plans for June, we want to first extend our Mazal Tov to Joshua and Beth Schreiber upon their recent marriage. Our wishes for all life’s best. We also want to thank Joshua, our Rabbinic Intern for the past year, for all his input, concern, guidance, and talent. Our sincerest wishes for success in any and all of his future endeavors and know that TTI will always be glad to see you whenever you can visit.

A Few things planned for June are:

Saturday, June 4, following Shabbat Service, a Kiddush recognizing and thanking Joshua Schreiber for his service to Temple Tifereth Israel. Join us and come by to wish Josh good luck.

On Sunday, June 12, 10:30 a.m. there is a Sisterhood meeting.

On June 29, a fundraiser is being planned by the Sisterhood at the LaSiesta Restaurant in Winthrop. Check for details and help support this worthwhile event.

Sandra Pellegrino,
President, Temple Tifereth Israel

Never Had A Bar or Bas Mitzvah?

No matter what your background or ability, you will be able to participate and achieve this wonderful goal.

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.
