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

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.
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.
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.
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.
