Tpheris Israel Chevra Kadisha Congregation

Tpheris Israel Chevra Kadisha Congregation (TICK) is an Orthodox synagogue which serves the Jewish community in the tranquil, western St Louis suburb of Chesterfield, Missouri.  The campus at TICK overlooks the scenic Greentrails Lake.

TICK has been a vibrant center of Torah Judaism within the greater St Louis Orthodox Community for over 40 years, and has provided the Jewish Community of Chesterfield a warm and nurturing place in which to grow in its levels of Torah learning, observance of mitzvos, and faith and trust in Hashem.

The synagogue oversees and maintains the beautifully decorated, full service Sarah Sheinbein mikvah, a kalim mikvah, as well as the community eruv. TICK also does outreach within the Chesterfield community, and is welcoming to all Jews. 

TICK is working diligently to bring to fruition its dream of growing even higher in spirituality through its launching of the Tpheris Israel Chesterfield Kollel.  B'ezras Hashem the Kollel will be comprised of six Rabbis committed to full time engagement in intense Talmudic study. The Kollel will also strive to provide an array of Torah learning opportunities for the Chesterfield and Greater St. Louis Jewish community.  The Kollel families are sure to be devoted to the needs of our membership and a great asset to our community.

From 2007 - 2015, TICK was home to the Missouri Torah Institute (MTI), a fully accredited High School and Beis Medrash program affiliated with the Chofetz Chaim Yeshiva.  Baruch Hashem we have seen the school grow and thrive within the warm, friendly environment of our Shul and community.  We wish everyone affiliated with the school hatzlacha as the Yeshiva moves into a sprawling, eight acre campus a few miles down the road in Chesterfield.  We are thrilled that the Roshei Yeshiva, Rabbis, and staff of the Yeshiva and their families will continue to live in our community and be active members of our congregation. 

Please contact Debbie Kay in our office, Dr. Keith Mankowitz, President, or our Rav, Rabbi Aaron Winter, if you are interested in learning opportunities, joining us for weekday services, spending Shabbos with us, or if you are considering a move to St. Louis.

TICK is a member of the Orthodox Union.


Rabbi Aaron and Chani Winter

After holding prior positions in Richmond, VA and Phoenix, AZ, Rabbi Aaron Winter and Rebbitzen Chani moved to Chesterfield in 1989. Rabbi Winter studied under the revered Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivas Chofetz Chaim, Rabbi Henach Leibowitz, zt"l where he received his smicha (Rabbinic ordination).  Rabbi Winter also received smicha from HaRav HaGaon Rabbi Moshe Feinstein, zt"l.   Rabbi Winter is known for his focus on Mussar and his unwavering adherence to Halacha.  

Under Rabbi Winter's leadership, our synagogue has established the Chesterfield community eruv and built a full service, state of the art mikvah.  Rabbi Winter is currently spearheading the campaign to establish, as part of our synagogue, a community kollel.  The establishment of a kollel will bring to the community additional Torah scholars and their families, and provide yet even more opportunities for the spiritual growth of our members.

Several years ago, Rabbi Winter played a major role in bringing to Chesterfield the Missouri Torah Institute, a High School for boys that is affiliated with the Chofetz Chaim Yeshiva of New York.  The now thriving Yeshiva includes a post High School Beis Medrash program, and educates students not only from St. Louis, but from across the United States.

Rebbitzen Chani Winter is a beloved educator, known as "Morah Chani" by the hundreds of students that have walked the hallways of the H.F. Epstein Hebrew Academy of St. Louis.  The Rebbitzen serves as a wonderful role model for the women of the community.

Rabbi and Rebbetzin Winter have instilled in our community true Torah values and have been instrumental in creating the close knit, Torah based community we are privileged to experience at Tpheris Israel Chevra Kadisha Congregation.
