Holidays

Whether enjoying the freedom and liberation of Passover or the celebration and joy of Simchat Torah, Tifereth Israel is the place to experience the ebb and flow of the Jewish calendar cycle.

The High Holidays at Tifereth Israel are an opportunity to let yourself be immersed in the sounds of the choir and traditional liturgy in the main sanctuary, try out the alternative service for a participatory and interactive take on the Days of Awe, or take part in our musical family experience.
