We are grateful to you for your financial support of Temple Sinai!
In honour of Israel’s 75th birthday, the Temple Sinai team would like to share a few of their favourite things about Israel with you.
“I love the way Israel celebrates creativity. Musicians and poets are major public figures, and their work is honoured and present, even on signs in the street.”
“Hebrew University on Mt. Scopus at sunset, watching the entire city of Jerusalem turn to gold.”
“When visiting the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem, I fell in love with the work of artist Amrit Shimoni.”
“I love the many artist galleries in Safed, which is a magical place filled with calm and creativity.”
“At this moment, my favourite song is Beresheet by Idan Raichel. The lyrics and the music are what Israel is for me, love, diversity and family and joy.”
“Looking for a good book? I recommend Under Jerusalem: The Buried History of the World’s Most Contested City, by Andrew Lawler, which explores how the archeological exploration of this ancient city in the 1800s impacts current events.”
“Visiting family in Israel, including my aunt — Israeli/Canadian writer, journalist, radio broadcaster, folksinger and dancer — Malka Maron, is always a highlight for me.”

Hopefully I and my friend will get to go back to Israel this year…
“Nahariya, in northern Israel, is my favourite place. I love walking on the boulevards, enjoying the restaurants…did you ever taste Pesach bread? A wonderful place…also a stone’s throw from my sister and brother-in-law who live in Gesher Hasiv.”
We enjoyed the Peres Centre of Innovation and the Anu Museum. We were just there in December.
You’re very welcome. We have many happy memories of our membership at Temple Sinai.
We are going to experience a hot air balloon ride in the Gilboa area provided by Skytrek hot air balloon company. We would love people who are going on Toronto Federation trip in April 2023 to feel free to join us. Contact Seymore Applebaum for more information. (416) 892-8500
