Dear Sangha Members:
We are happy to announce that Congregation Tifereth Israel is opening their arms and doors and inviting Columbus KTC to hold our programs at their synagogue for the foreseeable future. We are grateful to the Rabbis and staff for their extraordinary generosity.
Congregation Tifereth Israel located at 1354 E Broad St, Columbus, OH 43205 south of Franklin Park. Parking is located in back. Please enter the building in through the doors that face the parking lot.
Signs will be posted in the main lobby to guide you to the appropriate rooms and greeters will be present to help, too.
The shrine room is carpeted and will have plenty of chair seating available. Bring your cushions and puja tables if you would like.
At their request of our hosts, we’ve been asked not to bring food items into the temple that are not kosher. Fruit and veggies and nuts are fine; home-baked items are not. We’ve been told that Entenmann’s baked goods are kosher and fine to bring in, as are snacks with the kosher label. But other items may not be approved. (I checked – no Timbits, Rich!) More details will be forthcoming. Our hosts said the East Broad Street Kroger in Whitehall has a great selection of kosher snacks.
