Due to the time change, the temperature during Monday – Friday minyan is too cold to be outside and has therefore been suspended. Shabbat and Sunday morning minyan will continue with an in-person option.

The religious services are at the heart of Tifereth Israel. They provide us with a regular opportunity to gather together, support one another, reflect in prayer, and express gratitude. Religious services are a source of comfort and warmth. While returning under these circumstances is less than ideal, we are happy to welcome our return to tradition with these pillars of our community. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we figure out how to navigate the complexities of the world we live in.
