The foundation for a meaningful Jewish Experience

Tifereth Israel Synagogue is a Conservative congregation in San Diego with a unique history dating back over 100 years. We strive to provide a community large enough to offer diversity, allowing individuals to find their niche, while continuing to be warm and personal – like family. Our congregation is welcoming to all, including interfaith families, same sex couples and those who identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community. Visitors are always welcome to attend our services and programs, and experience the warm embrace of our congregation.
