Congregation Tifereth Israel

Congregation Tifereth Israel, or Splendor of Israel, is an Orthodox synagogue founded by Ashkenazi Jews in 1911 in the Corona neighborhood of Queens. Due to a changing and aging Jewish population, the synagogue steadily deteriorated. In 2010, the New York Landmarks Conservancy began a $1.5 million dollar restoration. The Tifereth Israel building is the oldest structure built as a Synagogue in Queens.
