Sinai Connections

Spanish Speaking Sinai Connection

Our lives are all about connections and interactions with people, our family, friends or those around us; however, sometimes it is hard to find the time or the venue to connect.

On November 9, I "connected" with other Spanish speaking members of Temple, as part of the Sinai Connections project. 

Most of us moved to Canada and have that in common. Some were born here but shared the language. It was amazing, by just that shared connection, how a room full of strangers could feel like a room full of friends. Conversations started right away, stories were shared, and food was enjoyed, delicious food from many different parts of Latin America! Plans are already on the way for our next meeting and hopefully many more after that.

I applaud Temple's initiative to find shared connections within the community. Connecting doesn't seem so hard anymore. — Debbie Gaysinsky

Won’t you be my neighbour? 

Sinai Connections is all about bringing our Temple family closer together. 

Ongoing Sinai Connections include Spanish Connections, Sinai Stitchers and First-Time Parents Connections. 

If you would like to be part of any of these existing groups or have an idea that will bring our Temple family closer together, please contact Marcie at 416.487.4161 or email programs@templesinai.net. 


Bridge Connections

Are you a Bridge player or would like to learn? Let us know! We are looking into setting up some times to connect with your fellow Temple community members. 


First-Time Parents

Are you expecting your first child? Do you know someone in our Temple community who is? Bringing a child into your family is an exciting and significant life event. Share your experiences with our new group of first-time expectant — pregnant or adopting — parents. 


Sinai Lawyers  

We’re well prepared to hold court. Many of us have ventured into the field of law. We spread across the GTA in various fields, both private and public. We share a passion for justice. Our opening lunch and learn included a teaching by Lorne Sossin, Dean of Osgood Law, on the fusion of Judaism and law. 


Temple Sinai Stitchers  

Are you a knitter? Have you ever been a knitter? Or have you been thinking of starting? Sinai Connections has launched its next initiative. Let’s meet, have a coffee, get to know other Temple members and start knitting — together. Our beginners will be the scarf brigade and those with more experience will knit toques, blankets and more.

Mahjongg

Put your tiles on the table! The game that originated in China has come to Temple Sinai. Don’t miss out on an afternoon of intrigue and fun. Make your next move a Mahjongg Connection.


Curling Connections

Temple Sinai’s Curling Connection is in full swing! We have ice time and teams. Rocks will be thrown and ice will be swept.

Curling is one of the most popular sports in Canada! It is a game of intriguing strategy that can be played by people of all ages. It’s a great way to meet new people and stay active.

If you would like to join us, no experience is necessary; only enthusiasm to meet your fellow Temple community members and have some fun together is needed.
