Our ShinShinim

At Temple Sinai we have taken the initiative of participating in the Young Israeli Emissary Program, a program that strives to bring Israel into our homes, into Temple and the wider Toronto community. By hosting and housing young Israeli adults in a gap year (post high school and pre-military service), our entire Temple population, tots to seniors, experiences Israel through the perspectives and teachings of committed teenage Israelis.

Take the opportunity to experience Israel through the hearts, eyes and words of our ShinShinim and to connect and engage with these young adults, who will soon be in military garb, ensuring a safe and secure Israel for all of us.

Funding for our Young Israeli Emissary Program has been made possible from donations to the Israel Special Projects Fund.
