YOUTH GROUPS​

Lech Lecha

Learn about the wider Jewish world!

Join our Temple Sinai travel program called Lech Lecha (go forth)! Grades 7 and 8 are invited to join the spring trip that alternates every year between Boston and Southern Ontario. This is the first of many years of possible teen travel with Temple Sinai that includes a Grade 9 and 10 trip to Washington DC or New York City, and an Israel experience that happens every other year for Grades 10-12.

WALLAH!?! (Grades 4 to 6)

“The Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup.” WALLAH!?!

“I just saw a bush on fire and it did not turn to ash.” WALLAH!?!

“Seventeen kids bounced, flipped, leaped and jumped together at SkyZone.” WALLAH!?!

Wow!?! What a sight to see our kids in grades 4, 5 and 6 laughing and playing together. Youth groups at Temple Sinai are an energetic and engaging way for your children to build their Jewish community and Jewish identity through entertaining activities inside and outside of Temple.

This Israeli slang word is exclaimed after hearing something wonderful and unbelievable (Really!?! or WOW!?!) Our youth have such a wonderful time together, they asked for extra events.

Junior Youth (Grades 7 and 8)

Calling all members in Grades 7 and 8! You are enthusiastically invited to join us for an exciting year. Once a month, on Tuesday nights before religious school, we will have lounge night, so come out to play, eat, and schmooze. Join us for the many exciting events we have planned. Do you have a great idea for an event? Let us know!

Young members will learn about events at religious school as well as online. All information for parents about these events will come via flyers in the mail and Chadashot.

Grades 7 and 8 are full of excitement pertaining to bar/bat mitzvah; whether before, during, or after this momentous occasion, Junior Youth Group is an opportunity to experience fun programming with other Jewish young adults.

League of Temple Sinai Senior Youth (LOTSSY) (Grades 9 to 12)

Come and take part in all that LOTSSY has to offer. We have many great events planned, like our Shul-in and a trip to Horseshoe Resort. If helping others is your passion, come and take part in our social action outings. They are a great way to get involved and make a difference in your community. Come have fun and learn about your heritage. Tell us what you want. Make it happen! Join today!

Temple Sinai has been a place for us to engage in Judaism in a comfortable, fun and inviting atmosphere. Our kids love the experience, and we look forward to taking an active role at Temple Sinai for years to come!

My family joined Temple Sinai four years ago and we’re so pleased we did. Joining Maj Connections has proved a very positive way for me to connect with others at Temple; new friendships have developed.

As a result, I’ve accessed other Temple programs such as KIDushat Shabbat, delivering fresh produce to seniors, and being asked this past year to consult on the committee involved with redoing the Al Green Hall.

The education program at Temple Sinai provides great Jewish learning in a warm and welcoming environment. While the kids complain about going (as is the wont of Jewish children since time immemorial), they leave Hebrew school excited about their progress and come home with both art projects and stories to share.

Temple Sinai is such a nice, traditional synagogue with a warm feel. We love bringing my daughter to the Purim carnivals and look forward to bringing our other kids to events.

I was looking to extend my current exercise routine when Power of Posture and Pilates Classes became available at Temple. I hadn’t taken group classes before, but I was inspired to participate at Temple because of the friendly, familiar and nonjudgmental environment, the opportunity to meet new Temple Members, the extremely affordable cost for the classes and the excellent instructors. The classes are great and I would encourage others to join!
