Support TIP Member-Owned Businesses

Temple Israel’s Open for Business Directory

The Temple Israel Open for Business Directory features local, member-owned businesses within our synagogue community.

Temple Israel established this directory because in these challenging economic times many businesses are struggling from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope you will consider patronizing these member-owned establishments and professional services.  Many of these businesses also donate services and products to our synagogue. Your support can help fellow congregants’ businesses to survive and thrive in these challenging times.

All businesses owners listed here are temple members in good standing. Temple Israel and the Open for Business Committee do not endorse any business associated with the Open for Business Directory.

Temple Members: Please contact the Open for Business Committee at ofb@templeisraelnh.org if you would like a free  business listing or learn more.
