Religious Services

     Shabbat and Sunday morning services are conducted at Temple Tifereth Israel every week, starting at 9:30 am. Following Shabbat morning services, a kiddush is provided, and Sunday morning services are followed by a no-cost breakfast. Additional services are held on Jewish holidays.
     Come join us for one or more of these services. It is refreshing and invigorating to put aside the cares of the week for an hour or two. Get together with old or new friends and renew your contact with Judaism. Saturday morning services are typically completed by 11:30 am and Sunday morning services are usually over by 10:00 am.

     In addition to regular Saturday and Sunday morning services, we also hold Friday night Kabalat Shabbat services about twice a month and a Saturday night Havdalah service about once month.

     Friday night Kabalat Shabbat and Saturday night Havdalah services normally begin at 6:30 pm. The short services are usually followed by light refreshments.

     Contact the Temple at 617-846-1390 or at for dates and times of services.
