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
