ENGAGE IN TEMPLE LIFE
Our Reform congregation is more than a group of individuals: our members feel like an extended family. We offer multi-generational educational and social programming; dynamic Hebrew and religious school; exciting activities for young families; social action programs that reach out to the larger community; vibrant and inclusive daily services, and equal participation for men and women.
Temple offers an excellent range of opportunities for every member — no matter what their age or stage — to build relationships and find their own unique place in the Temple community.
For some that means joining in our very participatory Shabbat services, which have many opportunities for lay involvement, including Torah text study brought to life in a way that’s relevant for today. For others, it means finding enrichment in volunteer committees, social action initiatives, or adult Jewish learning programs.
Families value our excellent schools and child and youth programs that are designed for kids from 18 months to high school and beyond.
What our members say...
Saul Kaufman, Temple Sinai Reads
For me personally, we stopped on Richmond Street, just east of Yonge Street. There was a blue tarp and Lauren got out and took some food and a coffee to the person under the tarp. My wife and I have driven downtown for years and I’ve seen the tarp. While I was pretty sure there was someone under it, I pushed it out of my mind. This experience brought it to the forefront and I will not pass by again thinking about the people and without trying to help. I was also pleasantly surprised by the politeness and thankfulness of the people we met. As I said, it was a great evening and experience.
My son and I have already talked about going out again.
Thank you for this great opportunity.

Usually, when I come to the Friday night services, Wheel-Trans picks me up so early that I have to sacrifice the lighting of candles, blessing and partaking of wine and bread, and I cannot eat a meal until Wheel-Trans gets me home, maybe as late as 10.00 p.m.
Thanks to the miracle of technology. I was able this week to light candles, have a lovely Friday night dinner and then tune in to the very beginning of Temple Sinai's wonderful 6.30 p.m. service at 8.00 p.m. Should I feel guilty that this frightful virus has brought me this blessing?
