Welcome to Tifereth Israel


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.

Lead 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.

From the Rabbi:

The Saddest Time of the Year

Just as the month of Adar, in which we celebrate Purim, brings with it joy and gladness, this Sunday, July 5th, ushers in the saddest period of time in the Jewish calendar.

Beginning Sunday, with the observance of the Fast of the 17th of Tammuz, we usher in a period of mourning that culminates with Tisha B’Av, the 9th of Av, the day that commemorates the destruction of both Holy Temples in Jerusalem.

The sunrise to sunset fast that is observed on the 17th of Tammuz is a result of the following five great catastrophes occurred on this date. Continue reading

Tisha B’Av


Beth El, Kol Emet, Kehilat HaNahar, Ohev Shalom, Tifereth Israel and Brothers of Israel will gather as one kehillah–one community–for a special evening of worship and learning.

Tisha b’Av, the 9th day of the month of Av, is a fast day and a day of mourning that commemorates the many tragedies that have befallen the Jewish People, many of which have occurred on the ninth of Av. These include the destruction of the First and Second Temples, as well as the expulsion of the Jews from  England in 1290 and from Spain in 1492.
