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.

Want to be a Sponsor?
We invite you to support our congregation as a sponsor. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or online at http://bit.ly/ShabbatSponsor
