Shabbat and Holidays

At The Temple-Tifereth Israel we create sacred time and space, allowing us to set aside daily concerns, experience a sense of community, and reflect on the meaning of our lives. It is where we worship, where we learn, and where we find ways to put Jewish values into practice. It is a place to celebrate with one another in times of joy and find spiritual guidance and emotional support in times of sadness and personal need. The Temple enables us to deepen our spiritual connection to God, each other, the State of Israel and the Jewish people throughout the world, and to the generations that preceded us and those that will follow.

We will stream Kabbalat Shabbat live every Friday,
as well as other religious services and programs, until further notice.

Click HERE to go to the Live Streaming page; then choose the portal for the CHAPEL (Kabbalat Shabbat, b’nai mitzvahs and other services), HARTZMARK (Torah Study and other programs and services) or the space denoted on the Calendar. Many programs and services are also broadcast and saved on The Temple’s Facebook page. Please check our Calendar for updates on specific services and events.

Want to be a Sponsor?

We invite you to support our congregation as a sponsor.  Please note, while we are presenting services and programs virtually, we are still beautifying our bimah and synagogue with flowers each week. We are not currently hosting oneg gatherings, but look forward to seeing you soon!

Flowers for the Bimah are a $60 sponsorship and continue to provide beauty by decorating our lobby during the week that follows. Another way to sponsor a Shabbat service is to provide the oneg that follows a service. The oneg is a special time when the community is able to further that special bond started by attending a service together. A nice nosh, drink, and schmooze are all benefits of sponsoring an oneg. Regular Shabbat service oneg sponsorship is $100. To become a sponsor, please contact the Finance Department by phone at (216) 831-3233 or by email at or online at
