Tifereth Israel Synagogue has been unique in San Diego County, representing both tradition and innovation in the Jewish community. We are conveniently located in the East County of San Diego. Our fully egalitarian congregation is affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ). United Synagogue Youth (USY) is the official youth organization of Conservative Judaism. Tifereth Israel USY (TIS USY) is a chapter in the Far West Region. The Far West Region spans over 25 synagogues throughout the West Coast. USYers are welcome and encouraged to attend the many events hosted by the region such as Kinnusim (retreats), dances, Far West on Wheels (a three-week bus tour), and the annual regional convention. TIS USY hosts a diverse range of social, cultural, educational, and religious programming wherein we ultimately strive to instill a rich sense of leadership and community in our Jewish youth. Our Tuesday evening gatherings through Community Jewish High include sharing a meal in an informal setting and classes that offer a “little something for everyone.”
Starting July 1, 2021, the San Diego Jewish Teen Initiative will be transitioning under the new direction of the Jewish Federation of San Diego County. If you have any questions regarding community partners, grants, or offerings, please reach out to Molly Okun, Donor Engagement Manager.
