News & Upcoming Events

    Tifereth Israel Women’s League cordially invites you to a special evening of food and fashion on Wednesday, June 10th at 6:00pm in the social hall.  The program features a fashion show by Mainstream Boutique  of Valley Junction. Please invite your friends for an evening of fun, food, and fashion.  Please make reservations no later than Monday, June 8th to Gwen Griger. Mainstream will donate 10% of merchandise sales that evening to Women’s League.


    On Saturday, June 13th following Shabbat Café, leader Andy Goodman will be working with current and prospective Gabbais and taking some time to explore the Torah scrolls contained in our sanctuary’s ark.  If you currently serve as a Gabbai, if you’d like to learn how to do so, or if you would just like to come learn about these beautiful works of art that are so central to our congregational life, please join us – all are welcome!


    We open our doors at Tifereth every Wednesday night from 6-8pm to refugees seeking assistance, support, and advocacy.  Many of the problems we help solve are everyday issues relating to health, education, and housing.  Please consider stopping in Wednesday nights to volunteer, or just see for yourself the good work being done! Please contact Rob Kupitz at rkupitz@hotmail.com for more information or to volunteer.
