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.

Last Chanukah Party in
the 'old' All-Purpose Room
The last use of the 'old' all-purpose room at our Temple was for our 2013
Chanukah party that was held on Sunday, the 1st of December. Maybe it was the nostalgia of seeing
the last of the ‘old’ all-purpose room where we met so many times or maybe it was just an opportunity to
celebrate Chanukah and visit with friends, new and old, but the room was packed to capacity. At final
count, we had over 70 people, young and old, eating some latkes, enjoying a brief program put on by
the Hebrew School students and just having a good time celebrating the miracle of Chanukah.
In a sense, the final event was most fitting, since Chanukah resulted in the rededication of the Holy
Temple, and this Chanukah celebration marked the start of the rededication of our own Temple.
We hope to see all of this year’s Chanukah party attendees, plus many more of you when
we re-open the refurbished Temple next spring. In the meantime, stay in touch with the Temple via e-mail,
the Temple’s web site, facebook, or an occasional phone call. Don't forget, that we will be attending Shabbat
services at the Jack Satter House on Revere Beach next to Kelly's Roast Beef every Saturday morning at
10:00 AM. The Jack Satter House holds a very nice and short service, followed by a traditional Kiddush.
The Jack Satter House has been extremely welcoming to us and their hospitality is
