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 special 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...
Our people have many and varied mitzvot, sacred responsibilities. One that colours many others is our responsibility to look hopefully to the future. A hope I have for our people and our community this year is that we have the courage to mix tradition with innovation. We should draw comfort and strength from our Judaism even while it challenges us and we dare to challenge it. We should seek to live in a wide Jewish world that starts with our inner circles and reaches out to all corners of the globe!

When I began organizing the Sinai Connections initiative, I could never have conceived its eventual trajectory, or how it would change my place within Temple. I’ve met wonderful folks on my journey and hope I’ve helped Temple effect some positive change. Standing before hundreds of Temple members at Kol Nidre services, embracing Torah while beholding family and friends was magical. I felt part of something greater than myself. It was a personal “WOW” moment that I will cherish forever.

Temple Sinai has always valued music and has made a significant contribution to the greater world of Jewish music. Over 40 years ago Ben Steinberg created “Our Musical Legacy Series” to ensure that, through our synagogue, Jewish music could be celebrated and young Jewish artists could be recognized under our roof.

When I stood with the Torah in my arms, my shoulders draped in my late father’s tallit, I experienced an indescribable sense of pride, freedom and happiness. I am so thankful that I had the privilege of holding the Torah and dancing freely in this country, and that I will have the opportunity for further study at Temple. I truly love the experience of studying with the clergy!

For a brief time we were no longer members of a community, but members of a family.
