During this time of physical distancing, our daily gathering has been altered. Information may be found here.
Tifereth Israel’s weekday morning Shacharit service is held Monday through Friday at 7:30 a.m. on Sundays at 9:00 a.m. and on weekday Yom Tov, and secular holidays at 8:30 a.m. in the Goodman Chapel.
Tifereth Israel maintains a consistent daily morning minyan (the minimum of ten Jewish adults required for a full public worship service). We are continuing a tradition that dates back to our earliest years as a congregation.
Mr. I. Frank… has returned to again take up his position as one of the ‘hustlers’ for the congregation. Mr. Frank has been one of the most active workers from the start and has not relaxed his interest — it will have to be below zero in San Diego when Bro. Frank does not succeed in making up a ‘minyan,’ as he tells every man he is the last one needed.

The morning minyan at TIS strives to create a casual, warm environment that serves the spiritual, educational and fellowship needs of members as they begin each weekday. We also aim to provide the community with a place to gather in difficult times — to say kaddish for a loved one or to pray for healing — and a place to celebrate joyous occasions as well.
After our lay-led services, we invite everyone to share breakfast to enhance our sense of “kehillah” or community.
