Congregation Tifereth Israel Of Lower Bucks County is more than a synagogue – it is a community. We are very proud of our congregation, our history and most importantly, our coming together in times of ritual, celebration, as well as need.
Led by Rabbi Jeffery Schnitzer, we offer traditional, egalitarian prayer services, including Shabbat Services on Friday evening and Saturday morning, Sunday, Monday and Thursday mornings and Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
In addition to serving as a gathering place for Jewish worship, we offer a thriving Nursery School, a fun Religious School, and many classes, events and other opportunities for adults to gather to learn, celebrate and do mitzvot together.

story. We spent Thurs night through Sunday in Tzfat. On Sunday morning, we packed up and drove to Jerusalem to meet Eric’s Dad (Ron) and Lynn at the Israel Museum and later explored the city for the afternoon. Monday was Eric’s son’s Bar Mitzvah at the Kotel (Western Wall) with a brunch, then exploring the Old City. Tuesday was a rest day, with a visit to Yad VaShem (for Eric and his mother) and the Biblical Zoo (for Mira & Naomi) and and evening on Ben Yehuda Street. Wednesday was our day at Yam HaMelach (the Dead Sea, really the “salty sea”) and Masada. Today, Thursday, we are going to Haifa, then last minute shopping back here in Jerusalem. Sadly, we fly out early tomorrow morning. Continue reading
