About The Temple

     Temple Tifereth Israel of Winthrop is an unaffiliated Jewish congregation, whose services and practices nominally follow the Conservative tradition. We provide a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere for our congregants and visitors. The Congregation is committed to preserving Jewish values and traditions. We hold services on all Jewish holidays and on every Saturday and Sunday morning throughout the year. Our Temple also operates an excellent Hebrew school.
     Our Temple is located just north of Boston and is adjacent to East Boston, Logan Airport, Revere, and Chelsea. Winthrop has a population of just over 16,000, is largely residential and is a peninsula with the Atlantic Ocean to the East and Boston Harbor to the West. Winthrop's beaches are never crowded and are children-friendly. For such a small community, Winthrop boasts a large number of excellent, yet very affordable eating places.
     Deer Island is located at the southern tip of Winthrop and features a 2.6 mile walking and biking trail that provides amazing views of the Boston skyline. There are some 60 acres of open space with 10 landscaped overlooks here.
     Public transportation provides convenient and low cost access to Boston, while road access to Boston, points west and south is provided by 3 tunnels below Boston Harbor. A Ferry from Winthrop to Boston's Rowes Wharf runs from May through October and provides a great view of Boston Harbor. Points north of Boston, including New Hampshire and Maine, are easily reached by highways adjacent to Winthrop.
     Winthrop is a great place to visit and an even better place in which to live!
Temple Tifereth Israel provides an important resource for the town and for the Jewish community residing in and around Winthrop. Come, visit with us.

Construction Work Moves into High Gear

     During the past month, a significant amount of work has been accomplished on the Temple reconstruction and on the construction of the adjacent affordable senior housing building. Shown below are pictures of the uppor portion of the completed new window on the Veterans Road side of the building, an interior view of the main hall looking towards Veterans Road, and a view of the work accomplished on the senior housing building.

    While work on our "new" Temple continues, we are continuing to attend Saturday morning services at the Jack Satter House. The Jack Satter House has been extremely welcoming to us and their hospitality is much appreciated. If you haven't been to services there, we urge you to attend a Saturday morning service - starting time is 10:00 am.

  We are on Facebook at Temple Tifereth Israel - Winthrop.
